Inspired by the beauty of modern art, Carole Choucair Oueijan, born in 1966 in Beirut, Lebanon, faithfully reflected her Lebanese heritage in her art. Her journey into the world of impressionism began as ingenuous sketches at a very tender age and was further sculpted through academic education and training at YWCA College-Beirut, Lebanon, where she studied Interior Design and graduated with high distinction. After her graduation, however, Carole discovered her real passion for painting, so she attended the Institut Nationale des Beaux Arts-The Lebanese University and completed her Bachelor of Fine Art Degree.
Carole’s portrayal of the Mediterranean life carried her to Greece in 1989. There, she learned the essential skills of classical mosaic art, the Byzantine Indirect technique, and took this exceptional art into a different terrain when she moved to California in 1990. By tallying her artistic creativity and her impressionistic oil painting techniques, she began crafting exceptional mosaics art pieces with three dimensional effects, using stones such as marble-smalti combination, which brought her mosaic art pieces closer to the modern age and added a layer of innovation and captivating charm to her art pieces.
