Meet Carmel's Artist, R. Carol Skinner
Indiana's own R. Carol Skinner is well known in the Indianapolis area, specializing in Oil Paintings, including representational, as well as abstract art, and has developed her own style of Oil Etching. Skinner has transitioned from architectural and landscape representational art, to more modern, abstract art in the last several years due to a desire to express her art in a new way.
The artist has worked with various interior designers over the years. She has an appreciation for upscale furniture and room interiors. Furthermore, many interior designers have chosen her artwork to complement their room designs.
She is especially well known in the Carmel, Indiana area just north of Indianapolis, and has recently been featured in the Legends of Carmel book as well as other local publications. Additionally, she has taught her techniques at the Indianapolis Art Center for 23 years, and independently teaches Plein Air locally in the Indianapolis area, and creates commissioned art work.
Mayor Jane Reiman was Carmel's first female mayor from 1980-1987, serving the citizens of Carmel for 2 terms. Mayor Reiman refers to R. Carol Skinner as "Carmel's Artist" due to her long-standing dedication creating art for the City of Carmel. R.
