Journey - watercolour by Carol Greenshields

About my artwork

I have always loved art and using what is in my imagination to create paintings and sculptures. My mother is also and artist so its maybe in the genes!

Currently I mainly use watercolour and mixed media, not for any reason other than its wha I enjoy and this may well change tomorrow.

I have exhibited in Holland (I live in Holland).

The inspiration for my paintings now comes purely from the heart. I always paint what I feel and don’t consciously plan it.

Below are some examples of the different styles I enjoy paiting, for my full gallery click on the link below

About Me

I have always been an artist but in 2014 my life changed in a way I never thought possible. Whilst studying for a degree in psychology I myself was diagnosed with PTSD and received extensive therapy. Part of my treatment included art therapy. What my paintings revealed about my inner turmoil was astonishing. Pain that I had buried deep within and had been carrying around for years was suddenly exposed to me in the form of images. I really had no idea what I was holding on to and this revelation started me on my long road to recovery.

As a psychologist I often use art to help my clients reveal such emotions where words are just too painful. In many cases we have just learned to live with the pain making it part of ourselves, manifesting in ways that make our life so much more difficult such as poor sleep, recurrent injuries, lack of concentration, restlessness, poor self esteem; the list goes on.

With my website I want to not only share my journey with you, but encourage you to draw and paint and understand the pleasure and relief it can bring. Explore hidden meanings of what our art can mean with all the choices we have made when we draw such as colour, light, positions of people and objects.
