Artist and Owner CC Art Gallery
Charlotte Caroom specializes in oil paintings, mainly abstract, contemporary works, which, she says, create energy, balance and harmony. However, when she veers from the modern, cows are often the subjects of her paintings. Her work is often shown at Little Rock-based decor and furnishings stores, Cobblestone and Vine and Providence Design, and at fashion designer Abi Ferrin’s flagship boutique in Dallas.
When away from the easel, she enjoys helping our four-footed friends by working in dog rescue, spending time with family and friends and opening her home to people for events.
“I love bringing people together that didn’t know each other before,” she said. “I believe God brings people into our lives for a reason and that we are all intertwined for a purpose.”
Hometown: I moved to Little Rock when I was 15, so I feel like it is my hometown!
Favorite food: Seared tuna
Education: Bachelor’s degree in marketing and finance from the University of Arkansas.
First big break: I held an art show at my home with two other artists, and it was incredibly successful!
What attracted you to your career? In my first career I was a stockbroker, but after my daughter was born I decided to start painting. I love letting my creative ideas transfer to a canvas. You never know exactly how it will turn out. That’s exciting. I’m honored when someone wants to purchase one of my pieces of art for their home.
What accomplishment are you most proud of? My children of course! Sydney, Alex and Ely. I’m so proud of them and the wonderful people they continue to become!
What do you love most about what you do? Being able to create artwork that brings joy to someone else. That maybe makes them happy when they look at it and they see something that speaks to them.
What quality do you most admire in other women? Our faithfulness to each other. Friends build each other up and never stab you in the back.
Personal motto: Be generous, kind, forgiving, loving, big-hearted and most of all grateful for each blessing in life.
What talent do you wish you had? I wish I could sing and perform on stage!
Hobbies: I love my workout time and working in dog rescue.
Childhood nickname: CharChar
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? The beach….and I will.
