About The Artist

   Capturing the colors of love and laughter, Carolyn Schallmo uses acrylic paint and ink to bring to life fantastical and amusing ideas!

   On these pages, you will find a sampling of how Carolyn infuses both canvas and paper with fun, faith and humor in collections that span all seasons. In winter scenes, her chubby owls wobble and her funny bunnies leap with their snow friends beneath star-glittered indigo skies. In summer, her big-eyed bugs frolic in lush gardens ripe with color and whimsy, while festively patterned cats pay homage to the glow of the summer moon. Her charming castle turrets rise over rolling landscapes fashioned of whimsy and mirth, and her hot air balloons lift off against color-saturated skies. 

     This site showcases Carolyn's whimscal line of notecards,  on which she pairs her delightful artwork with words of inspiration to tickle your fancy, hug your heart and lift your spirit.  Original pieces and prints are available by contacting the artist directly.

   As a children's book illustrator, Carolyn has provided art for several titles currently available via Amazon. She also teaches art classes, conducts workshops and painting parties and frequently participates in art shows. 

   "This is a family operated business and we travel, live an uproariously busy life and keep a fully operating art studio," Carolyn says. "I have a fabulous time and I'm grateful that you've taken the time to enter my world!"
