Santora with her dogs Dixie and Biscuit


Carol Santora, PSA, is an internationally-collected, award-winning equine and animal artist best known for her expressive and soulful paintings of horses and commissioned dog portraits. Other favored subjects include farm animals (cows, sheep, chickens), the big cats and select wildlife (bears, moose and buffalo).

Santora works in soft pastel and acrylic and her styles are equally diverse. Texture and line are the dominant design elements in her paintings that capture the spirit of animals. Using bold strokes of pastel or spontaneous splashes of acrylic paint and the beauty of form, Santora celebrates animals in an explosion of color.

The Lyman, Maine-based artist is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, has an art gallery and working studio in her home, and is represented by galleries in ME and WY.
