Early life and education

The difficulty speaking a foreign language emphasized the importance of looking at art as a non-verbal communication.  “It was incredibly challenging.  It changed my perspective on the power of art to persuade an audience.” [3]


Carole Boller's plein air paintings have enigmatic colors, energy lives within her beach scenes. Boller's aesthetic balances light and water. Her early works were inspired by nature around Lake Michigan and the surrounding lakes.  Carole explained that “painting in the midwest weather was difficult, no matter what season. The shadows were dull and created a challenge to find fresh color.”`[4]

In the 90's Carole Boller found the ocean at Newport Beach.
