About Me

My name is Carole Vienna Forrester, originally from Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England. I have been painting for as long as I've been able to hold a brush. I am a published poet, illustrator, digital and analogue artist, jewellery creator and heraldic artist. I am an inveterate cloud and wave watcher.

Aside from my love of painting, I am a trained heraldic artist, have worked for Hull Museums and Art Gallery, with responsibility for marketing and producing leaflets, copy and press releases for events and exhibitions, working on two large projects, the openings of the Streetlife Transport Museum and the Hull and East Riding Museum.

You might see references to Carole Barley on some of the images in these pages. Carole is my first name and Barley was my married name. I have since reverted to my birth name of Forrester and tend to use my middle name for art purposes. There is a more comprehensive "about" on the Vienna Forrester Portal where you can also find my other sites in digital art, heraldic art and jewellery.
