Nanette Carton is a native Floridian born in 1977. As a self-taught artist, she is inspired by nature, mystical and historical places and a love for gardening. Her subjects vary from local scenes, flowers and wildlife to spiritual sites and fantasy worlds. Using bright, dramatic colors, with acrylics has become a signature for Nanette*s unique style. She renders mostly on canvas but also paints on river rocks, wood furniture and has painted wall murals. Local Galleries have featured her work and she has also participated in a variety of Art Venues & Exhibits. Nanette lives in Hobe Sound, Florida with her husband and cats.
Nanette started a series of paintings called, the *Mother Nature* series in 2007. Which has turned into her favorite to create and paint with acrylics, on large canvases. These worlds consist of colorful renditions of nature including an abundant variety of wildlife, surrounded by trees, flowers, water and anything found in nature, you will notice there are no man-made objects. Nanette hopes to create many more of these worlds alike. The premise behind these paintings is to create a fully detailed, hide and seek, earthly world with a day or night scene. With Nanette*s bold imagination, you will see the same flow of nature coexisting in each image with the greatest subject being of love, tranquility and peace. She named the series *Mother Nature* to dedicate to her late Mom and Mother-in-law, who greatly encouraged and inspired her.
