ABOUT CAROLE MCKEE ARMEN

  • I have always longed to live in a storybook.

     

    So, I created the necessary furnishings and artifacts of such an illustrated, thematic, symbolic and metaphorical world.  Others saw my artwork (You can see it, too on my website!) and asked for a piece of that world specifically designed for their own. Thus began: commission-driven-curiosity and thrilled clients. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • For the last three years I’ve dedicated my artistic energy to a book. Imagine my shock! This graphic novel bestowed on me the unexpected privilege of living in a storybook! My characters compel me to dive into vulnerability and power.  They commission me to visually communicate their story of what happens when appetite, shame and courage collide. My graphic novel, Lurking Variables, is that work in progress.
