Carol Childs was born in Poole, Dorset in 1973. She became interested in Art from an early age, and as her talent was realised in her late teens she was asked to undertake commissions for friends and family.

Eventually, this interest inspired her to study for and obtain an A-level in Art from the Bournemouth College of Art & Design. Following her qualification, Carol's interest in Art became more serious, and what had started as a hobby, started to become a career and way of life. 

To date Carol has successfully produced many commissions, including 2 paintings for The Royal Marines, as well as work for the Anaconda Motorcycle Racing Team. She has also been commissioned by the Mayor of Poole,to do a painting for a charity auction.

She has also done many other commissions including several weddings and a skydive check out the commission page to see the quality of her work.

Carol has also produced work on a commission basis for local small businesses, as well as continuing to fulfill the high demand for personal commissions from family, friends and acquaintances. Although the greatest demand for Carol's work is focused locally to Dorset, buyers of Carol's work are as diversely spread as South Africa and the Caribbean.

Carol has recently decided to display her paintings more publicly, with a critically acclaimed exhibition of Contemporary Paintings during February, and an open air exhibition in Bournemouth Gardens during July, introducing her work to a wider audience. She also has work  regularly exhibited in the quarr gallery in swanage and Passionart Gallery in westbourne, Bournemouth.

Further exhibitions are planned, and coupled with this website, Carol hopes to publicise her paintings to a National and Worldwide audience.
