Carole Belliveau was raised just outside New York City and attended Parsons School of Design in Manhattan. She crafted original sculptures in doll form for twenty-five years while producing her own collection, introduced at the International Toy Fair each year to a large following of fans.
Carole has also designed for large toy companies such as Hasbro and Marie Osmond Dolls. Carole moved from Boston to California in 1997 and was exposed to a whole new environment of unlimited vistas, incandescent color, and an ocean full of drama and light. She was attracted to landscape painting: changing everything. Carole entered The Academy of Art University and graduated Cum Laude with a BFA in 2008. Carole’s passion for art has led to a life filled with possibilities.
Carole Belliveau is a member of The California Art Club, The Portrait Society of America, The American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists and is the former President of the Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters Association. She received the BoldBrush Award in Oils in 2015 and the Bold Brush Best Acrylic in 2018. Her prize-winning work can be found in many private and public collections.
