Artist Bio - Carol van Ahlers


Carol does well to draw a recognizable stick figure, but refuses to let that stop her from trying out new ways to stretch her artistic creativity, often to the humorous enjoyment of others. She is a recent empty nester and can’t wait to fill her days with meeting new people who share her appreciation for art and the joy brought on by its beauty.

Carol's background is in public relations and marketing.  For several years she was co-owner of AhlerSmith Public Relations, a firm specializing in sports marketing and government public relations.  She has worked for several years as a freelance writer and public relations consultant prior to forming artside studio with her friend Steffi.  She has also worked in the Fullerton School District as a substitute teacher since 2006.
