Carol Arnold

Carol was first inspired to become a painter when as a child she became fascinated by the plein air painters her family encountered on vacations in seaside Gloucester, Massachusetts. After graduating from Vesper George School of art in Boston, Arnold spent several years working in the commercial art field before turning her attention fully to fine art painting.

She is currently a member of Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik’s Putney Painters located in Putney, Vermont. Arnold’s work, executed primarily from life, has been steadily winning recognition, including the First Honor Award at the Inspiring Figures Exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art in October of 2010. She won an Honorable Mention at the Portrait Society of America’s Members only competition in December of 2010, and in April of 2011, she was awarded a Certificate of Excellence at the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition.  Carol also received the Certificate of Excellence award at the  Portrait Society of America in May of 2012.
