Biography

Carole Forget is an artist born and raised in the Greater Montreal area. She started drawing at an early age and has always hoped of developing and improving her skills further. After many years on her own, she eventually decided to take lessons to refine her art.

She attended drawing courses at the Musee des Beau Arts, and then studied oil painting under the watchful eye of Janet Harris. She also took classes in “Trompe L’oeil” with Frank Imperato at Saydie Bronfman where she also experimented with acrylics, pastels and egg tempra. Finally she adopted oil as her preferred medium to develop her own style to best represent her favorite subjects: people and animals.

Forget has participated in several group exhibitions in the Montréal region. She was rewarded, in 1993 with an honorary mention in the oil category at the annual Pierrefonds Art Contest. Her works are part of private collections in Canada. In 2002, she received the silver medal for figurative work from le Cercle des artistes peintres et sculpteurs du Quebec (CAPSQ).

She is a mother of three boys who became in house models and the subjects of many of her paintings. In 2000, the youngest started school thus allowing her to practice her art full time. The inspiration they provide led her to explore in depth, more of the people around her and develop a “realistic” style.

To reproduce the smallest details, to try to go beyond and cast more than the eye can see and to try to capture that little something is testament to her favorite quote:

“There is no reality, only perception"

Carole Forget
