Welcome to Carole Lewis!

My name is Carole Lewis and I have worked as an Interior Designer for well over 20 years. My love of creating beautiful interiors is a life-long passion. I have recently discovered the need to express myself in a more personal way. My Art form is mixed media collage work.

Like my Interior Design, it requires composition, textures and a bit of nostalgia and whimsy. I enjoy collecting and making different themed compositions of my work. The pieces all go together like a puzzle for me into one singular piece. The pieces I create are timeless. https://carolemlewisart.wixsite.com/carolemlewisart

While working in Interior design I have formed a wonderful friendship and business relationship with Cynthia , together we have collaborated on many projects. I look forward to being a Guest Artist at “Art in the Barn!” where we can all create unique collages together!
