Born in 1958, Carol Pyes joined Arts of Life in 2017. Though relatively new to the studio, her outgoing and helpful nature provided a seamless entry into our community.
Pyes works adeptly in a variety of mediums; most often pastels or colored pencils. Her artwork evidences a light hand and a penchant for the people and animals she has a fondness for.
“I like colored pencils better than oil pastels. I’m glad it’s done because I finished it. I feel proud that it’s done.”
Her practice is methodical. She plans her works thoroughly before beginning a project and and takes equal care with their execution. A stickler for precision, her color selections are meticulous. Likewise, the composition and mark making of her works reveal fastidious intentionality.
