Art Brokerage: Carole LaRoche American Artist: Carole LaRoche captures a world of natural magic in every bright image she paints. Her birds, animals, and people glow from within. Their still, vulnerable faces reflect their inner souls, conjuring up angels, oracles, and shamans. LaRoche's paintings are instantly recognizable because of the impact of their glorious color and strong composition. Their powerful graphic presence is communicated with timeless clarity. LaRoche has been an artist since she was a very young woman, attending art school and collecting African sculpture. She found the ideas of the academic world confining, so after acquiring the basic technical skills that any artist must begin with, she moved to New Mexico and set out on her own. Her creative spirit soared in the Santa Fe skies. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
