Tahoe-Truckee based artist Carole Sesko has an endless fascination with color, form, and texture. Deriving inspiration from the beauty of the natural environment, she works with acrylic paints and mediums applied onto wood, canvas, metal, and paper. Often she mixes new materials with recycled objects, creating a dynamic fresh context for the viewer to interpret and share. Her work is process driven, inspired by adding and subtracting elements, resolving their balance until the artwork achieves a unified flow.
Trained in design as well as art, Carole first started painting with acrylic on canvas in 1993. Through experimentation she developed a technique of layering metallic paint with solid colors to achieve iridescence and vibrancy. Many of her art works change color relative to the angle from which they are viewed. In addition to paintings, Carole creates one of a kind functional art pieces, which inspires her larger works.
Originally from the Berkshires in Massachusetts, Carole received an Associate of Arts from Simon’s Rock College, and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design from the University of California, Davis. Her artwork can be found in private collections throughout the world.
