Heading 1

Amy B. Carroll

 

I can’t imagine painting something that doesn’t come from my roots.  By roots, I mean my feet being planted firmly on the soil of where I grew up in Missouri, to the murky bottom of Yellow Creek Lake in northern Indiana, where I spent my childhood summers, to the black-topped roads of my current home in Speedway, Indiana.  These are the places which inspire me to pick up a brush and share them with everyone else.
