The Artists of Algonquin

Carole Ann Thur

PO Box 1703
Bracebridge, Ontario, PIL 1V7

Carole was born in London, England but became a naturalized Canadian citizen at the age of 14 months. She lived in Gatineau, Quebec where, at an early age, the beauty of the hills instilled the beginnings of her artistic endeavours. Since then she has taught herself through reading art books and studying old masters techniques, concentrating on portraiture initially, and later on landscapes with animals and/or objects.

Due to a busy adult life, she was unable to pursue art again until retirement. She now works out of her home in Bracebridge, Ontario, where she has lived for more than 35 years. She paints in acrylic on hand-crafted wood items, canvas, and has done wall murals as well as charcoal portraits. Her painting style is impressionistic with touches of realism.

In her artwork she endeavours to promote sensitivity to the beauty, serenity and sacredness of nature - land, animal and human - instilling in viewers the need to preserve and care for natural surroundings, be they forests, lakes or wetlands.

She is a member of Muskoka Arts & Crafts Inc., Haliburton Arts Council and Rails End Gallery and Art Centre, Haliburton.
