Who is Carole Conley? Born in Detroit, Michigan then moved south over 40 years ago and now I only visit the North. I Retired from PAEC in Chipley after serving as a Computer Consultant to 14 School Districts supporting Payroll for 22 years.
Art has always been a fun part of my life, in High School I took 3 years of art and always was drawing. Married at 17 to Larry Conley and we had two children and over 53 years of marital bliss. When my son went to kindergarten, I returned to College and obtained a degree in Data Processing. I tried to squeeze in a few painting and drawing classes thru the years, but they were few and far between.
Now that I’m retired I can draw and paint to my hearts delight. Larry still expects me to cook and occasionally clean. I have found that I love painting on stone for it has so many different shapes and contours it almost tells me what should be painted on it. After knee replacement I spent a lot of sleepless nights and found that painting took the pain away.
I paint with oil and acrylic on canvas and stone and have won second place at the Paint and Pork Festival in Marianna, FL two years in a row for my stone. There is a lot to learn, but hopefully I have another 30 years on earth to practice and paint my creations. I believe that my talent for painting is a gift from God and like to share it with others who love Art.
