Carol Cole Catholic Artist

I call my technique painted paper mosaic collage.

I use flat tempera paints in contrast with shiny acrylics to mirror earthy and spiritual realities.

I love creating  big batches of color and texture-rich painted papers.

My designs resemble a mix of stained glass windows and mosaics.


I work with painted papers, not glass or ceramic tiles.


I carefully adhere the papers into the designs,


and finish the work with inks, dimensional paints, and sealants.


Whether working on a small project by myself,

or working with art campers on a large project to donate to school auctions,
