Biography: Carol Shumas’ imagination scoops up vivid images of people and events, spinning this storehouse of ideas into a riot of colour and fanciful characters, from medieval pioneer times. Performing simultaneous roles of historian, costume designer, and stortyteller, Carol treats her work like a musical - setting stories in a timeless era. Carol was born in West Vancouver. Her first medium of expression at the age of 17 was needlepoint. First, she created dresses because her only toy at her Grandmother's was fabric and a rolling pin, which she pretended was rolling dough. She had bags of ribbon in her closet and scraps of cloth. As an extension of her work, she started painting at age 26, and took her love of costume to the stage as wardrobe designer for “The Tale of Maureen” (Poor Alex Theatre 1993) Her fascination for history encompasses a broad range of influences extending from medieval times to our more recent Canadian heritage. She researches the traditions and enjoys watching television to feed her appetite for genre - westerns, musicals, soap operas and classic theatre - while always leaving room for the light-hearted. Her paintings are for sale, ranging from 450 to 1200 dollars, if you think they look good on your mugs think how look they'd look good in your living-room!
