Born in 1958 and raised in a rural area outside of Moncton, New Brunswick, Carole has been drawing and painting ever since she can remember. Growing up, her family spent weekends and vacations camping along the beaches and rivers throughout the Atlantic Provinces, Quebec and Ontario, her dad an avid fly fisherman and her mom a nature lover who grew up on a farm in Quebec.
