"There is such great joy in transforming what many view as ordinary objects or elements into beautiful works of art, through skillful use of form, light and color. It is my goal to create paintings that draw the viewer in, so I may share my personal vision, experience and emotion. My hope is that the experience will be rich enough and compelling enough that the viewer, for a moment, becomes part of the story." - Lucille Carter, PSA, ACA, PSSW.
