New Orleans artist Carol Peebles is a successful and sought after American portrait painter and teacher.  Her work has been shown in renowned international art shows. Her exquisitely sensitive portraits reflect the technical and emotional skills she has honed in the 25 years she has devoted to her art. Her early years of formal training at the University of New Orleans, BA, Penn State, MFA, and the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts were enhanced by extensive traveling and working abroad. In 2009, Carol founded her own drawing atelier, the Blue Easel Club. Her goal is to teach people how to draw from life as an antidote to the isolating effects advancing technologies are having on society. For more information about Carol, visit her website
