Carole Milne, a self-taught representational painter, was born and raised in Vancouver and started watercolor painting in the late '80s, and although she has since worked in oil, acrylic, and watercolor, she now works primarily in Oil, painting for her own enjoyment.
Her passion is painting and her inspiration is the wilderness in all its beauty - grasses and trees dancing in the breeze, animals with their grace and beauty and the relaxing feeling of rivers and ocean. It is no surprise that painting en Plein air is very important to Carole. Painting in the peace and quiet of nature is what she enjoys most. Her paintings have been shown in many venues and show in the lower mainland.
Carole has volunteered and worked in various positions on the executive boards of the South Surrey and White Rock Art Society, the Burnaby Artist Guild and as a board member of Semiahmoo Arts. She is a past member of Coquitlam Fine Arts, the Burnaby Artist Guild, Richard Major Group, Delta Artist Guild and Semiahmoo Arts. She is currently a member of the SSWRAS, and Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the Fraser Valley Chapter of the FCA.
