E. Carol Gaines developed an interest in charcoal and pastel drawing as a child.
She began drawing horses and feels it has evolved to her current interest of early man
and his interpretation of the environment through art and symbolism.
Her recent concentration has been on the study of Paleolithic and Native
American art along with symbolic interpretation.
Her current series of paintings are being inspired by her dreams.
Some paintings come from a simple idea for a subject and others
by a dream of the finished piece.
Gaines has exhibited in various juried art shows and
has had several one woman shows in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois.
