Carol Yates – Artist

Carol has always been creative. She studied art at school and was inspired to pick up her paintbrushes again about 12 years ago, after a visit to a gallery in Holland. Her progress since then, is largely due to personal learning and development.
Inspired by the natural world, Carol paints mainly wildlife and flora but sometimes ventures into still life for development. She works predominantly in soft pastel, enjoying its versatility, but also uses mixed media for some of her work. She lives in the Yorkshire Dales, so considers herself lucky to be surrounded by wildlife and natural beauty for inspiration. Carol doesn’t provide formal lessons but is happy to demonstrate her techniques and share her knowledge. She will also consider commissions and can be contacted here at the studio or by email at
