American artist Carole Turner creates contemporary figurative and abstract sculpture primarily in stone, bronze, and steel.  Her voluptuous forms are organically stylized and/or abstracted to varying degrees. Much of her smaller scale work is in bronze , with many large-scale public sculptures internationally in marble, granite, limestone, basalt, and stainless steel. 

Educated at Portland State University, New York University, Art Students League of New York, and Pacific Northwest College of Art, Carole is a professional sculptor, commissioned and exhibited internationally. She is a frequent participant in International Sculpture Symposia, and is co-organizer of the Puerto Vallarta International Sculpture Symposium.
