Born and raised in Germany, Carola Nix studied Interior Design and Architecture before coming to the United States. She is a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA), the Bossier Arts Council, and the Shreveport Art Club as well as a roster member of the Northwest Louisiana Artist Directory. She has also illustrated several book covers for the German/American writer Patricia Koelle, which are available as e-books and in print. Carola has r eceived several awards in local juried art competitions ranging from honorable mentions to 1st Place. 

"Colored pencils, graphite and ink give me the  control I 
need  in realism. Add to that fluid acrylics  and watercolors 
and I can express my mental  and emotional  states 
in the abstract or surrealistic realm.  Regardless of media, 
when I am in my right brain,  I feel as one  with the 
painting or drawing I am working  on and often relate 
to them as one would relate to a child. 
I would love for others to enjoy my "children" as much as I 
enjoyed the creative process that brought them to life."

Carola has received recognition as Louisiana Colored Pencil Artist in "Our Louisiana" Magazine in February of 2012 and January of 2013 and has attended colored pencil workshops provided by artists such as Dyane Locati, Linda Lucas Hardy, and Linda Theodoratos. She is currently teaching 
workshops in colored pencil art. 


Food and wine pairings are a collaboration by Chef Monday
