Light In Paint

William Carlen is an artist from Cookeville, Tennessee. His introduction to art and his inspiration was his grandmother, an artist who owned a gallery in Atlanta. His first experience was "painting" at an early age in her studio. In graduate school, he developed his love for oil painting, continuing to learn, experiment, and grow.

" Light is everything to me. I am constantly trying to discover subtleties in the behavior of light. My website name, Light in Paint, reflects this fascination with the light and the possibility of capturing just a little bit of the beauty that God shines down on his creation."
