Shelle Lindholm paints animals with attitude. Her primitive painting style has developed through exploration of the versatile medium of acrylics. Scraping, carving and etching, Lindholm excavates layers of paint and wax. Strongly influenced by folk art from around the world, her stylized animals race, romp, and rest while being dressed up in bold patterns and painted in earthy "Montana" colors.
Carol’s own journey as an artist began some 25 years ago. She has had no formal training, and has worked hard to develop her own style of expressing herself on paper and canvas. “My paintings come from my heart. They are a contemporary expression of my subject matter, both through my choices of vibrant color and the textures that I use.”
With work in private and corporate collections across the United States and abroad, Carol is represented in fine galleries in the West and Southwest. Upon seeing a piece of her work, Carol hopes that patrons understand her passion for color, for painting animals, and for the beauty of the West, as she strives to forge a trail of her own.
