About Carolyn Shoemaker (Soma)

 
 
  • Biography
    My name is Carolyn and I am an Artist/Designer. My love for art started at a very early age. As a little girl I was always creating, drawing and making cards. I always knew art would figure prominently in my life, professionally and personally. 
     
    I studied at the College For Creative Studies in Detroit, where I earned my BA in Graphic Communications. I am an established professional graphic designer for the last 20 plus years. Just in the recent years I have come back to fine art, it has been so rewarding to focus more on painting.  Acrylics are my medium of choice, and my subject matter changes from day to day. I enjoy experimenting with all types of subject matter, color and techniques.

    I recently was invited to exhibit my work at the 2015 and 2016 CCS Alumni Exhibitions and had a one women show at Cranberries Café in Goodrich, Michigan. Was invited to exhibit my work, at the South Haven Center for the Arts and Crooked Tree Gallery in Traverse City Michigan and Paint Creek Center for the Arts in Rochester, Michigan.

    I am inspired  by Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollack, Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol and so many more! From abstracts to realistic landscapes and flowers, I am exploring it all and enjoying every moment.
