About The Artist

Ms. Darling began drawing animals at the age of five and has continued a close association with a variety of wildlife,  while perfecting her talents of draftsmanship and sensitive portrayals.  Childhood years spent living in Europe enabled the young artist to see firsthand the original work of great Renaissance Masters.  Today her drawings and paintings  reflect this early influence.

Carol was an Honor Student and top graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design,  and also graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word,  with the degree in Arts Education.  Her busy  life included being an  internationally published sports photographer and award winning graphic designer.  A parallel career in arts teaching enabled her to influence the careers of many  artists across the country.
