“Wait! We’re Hosting Thanksgiving??? Quick! Fix the House!” A Demo Nov. 7 by Artist Carol Stoecker at VAST

You are invited to: “Wait!  We’re Hosting Thanksgiving??? Quick!  Fix the House!” A Demo by Artist Carol Stoecker at VAST.  The event takes place on November 7th, from 6:45 – 9:00 pm at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in Denton, Texas.

Carol will be demonstrating step-by-step how she makes stone and brick texture and then paints it to give it a realistic look. She states that: “This knowledge would be great for those hosting Thanksgiving or Christmas,” hence the title of her presentation.

Art has come in many shapes and sizes in Carol’s lifetime.  After earning a Bachelor of Art Degree in Fashion Design with a Minor in Fashion Illustration, she worked several very creative jobs, from District Home Economist, Clothing Designer/Pattern Maker & Illustrator, Floral Designer to full time Artist.  She also volunteered in the Destination Imagination program (creative problem solving) for several years to share some of her creative skills with children.

In 1999, Carol expanded her creative career by starting her own business painting murals and faux finishes in hundreds of model and residential homes.   Her business grew over the years to include commercial clients like The Slalom Shop, Blue Goose, Aw Shucks,  Grapes To Wine, Cowboy Up, Lantana Pediatrics, Grand Homes, Dunhill Homes, Grenadier Homes and many more in the DFW area, and residential clients in Florida, Oklahoma, California, Missouri, Illinois, Arizona and Arkansas.

As Carol’s business has grown, she has become a full time artist and has experienced many types of paints through painting murals, textured stone, fine art, pet portraits and glass painting.  She also just finished a number of painted illustrations for the first in a series of children’s books “Zaboo The Great”.   By using her Divine gifts, she was voted Best of Denton County 5 years, 4 years as Artist and 1 year as Custom Decorative Painter, and Merging Visions in the VAST Program 1 year, paired with Becca Hines.
