About my studio business

Hello and welcome to my art studio website! I offer professional quality acrylic and watercolour paintings, drawings and illustrations, pet portraits, handmade linocut prints and greeting cards, colouring books and colouring posters.

For custom art commissions, pet portraits and illustration projects please contact me for an individual quote. I teach art part time at the Saanich Adult Education Centre and occasionally offer private classes and art workshops to small groups and individuals. Since spring of 2020 I also offer virtual art lessons and demonstration videos on my YouTube channel and have been teaching my regular art classes on Zoom, a virtual online platform. I run my art studio business at a gentle pace to accommodate my chronic illness/disability. Your support for my creative work is much appreciated.

Thank you for supporting the arts!

New website Ever since the pandemic began last year I have been making a LOT of art. I want to revitalize my art studio business so I decided my website needed a refresh. I hired my friend Nicole Bottles to build me a new website. It is launched and ready to view! I have a large portfolio section, a blog, and further information about me and my art practice. It’s truly a feast for the eyes and I couldn’t be more proud! Please visit www.carolinestengl.com.  We also built a subdomain website that is just for my art students. That section is password protected, but if you become one of my students you will have access to this section to enjoy a student art gallery, a blog, art education resources and other goodies. At some point when it becomes safe to do so I may offer art
