I am a national collage artist. I have Signature status in National Collage Society and the International Society of Experimental Artists. I have shown my work in exhibits in the United States and Canda for the past thirty years. I have worked with some of the top artists in Washington and attended University of Washington majoring in art history. I studied with an expert Chinese Brush painter artist for four years and incorporate many of those methods in my work. Painting is pure joy for me. When it extends to others enjoying what I produce that is wonderful. I like people to look and see what they can in my work.It's a journey for them and I don't like to guide it to much. . I love that kind of participation on the part of the viewer and would like for it to continue each and every time they look at a painting.
Profile at Carole Bleistein

I am a signature member of The National Collage Society and the International Society of Experimental Artists.

I have had an on line presence for over tne years and have produced six art videos. My work has been included in three books Two National books on Collage and one on Northwest Artists. My American Canadian background surfaces in my work with a reflection of the terrain, textures and colors of the North west.”I like my work to make ones imagination work. it’s a gift of color, form and freedom it doesn’t stop when the painting is completed it continues with each set of eyes that see it and every mind touched by it.”
