Carol Ochs Art

& Fiber Crafts

Carol has drawn and painted all her life, self-taught in several different mediums and always trying more! First inspirations were the gorgeous illustrations in children's picture books she was mesmerized by as a child.  Then as an adult, she found herself drawn-to and inspired again by the gorgeous picture books she read to her own children when they were small; a re-kindled inspiration-fest with all things mythic, whimsical, and magical she'd been intuitively connected with in her own childhood...a return to imaginative roots. And thus, she's been painting fairies, mermaids, witches, dragons, and all manner of enchanted beings ever since!
 
Carol's art has been featured in books, online magazines, as commissioned enchanted portraits, and is available as prints, greeting cards, and on many useful products (mugs, trays, t-shirts, totes, aprons, etc.) at art venues listed at her main art website: .....

Carol Ochs Art (a.k.a. Wild Oaks Art)
Her art frequently appears locally in San Diego at La Bodega Art Gallery, and at Comic Con's annual Art Show that features fantasy and science fiction art.
Come visit, perhaps find an enchanted treasure or two to grace your own realm, or gift to someone who appreciates myth, magic & fantasy!  Perhaps a child's special room! Carol is also available for commissioned art & illustration for your special illustration project or portraiture!

We're adding prints of Carol's art HERE (below) at this website, for one-stop shopping!  Be sure to sign-up for our mailing list (bottom of page) to receive update notices!
Our prints are vibrant giclee-quality, made on acid-free art paper with newly-developed core pigment archival UltraChrome HD ink-jet inks, rated for a minimum 200 years and beyond.  It is best to frame each print under glass, and hang out of direct sunlight, for longest-lasting life.  Each print purchased arrives to you with a cardboard backboard, in an acid-free clear sleeve, signed on the back by the artist, and includes an artist bio sheet.  Each art piece is © copyright protected by Carol Ochs, all rights reserved.  You may not reproduce the art piece in any manner whatsoever without written consent/permission/contracted license by Carol Ochs.  This also precludes applying Carol's art to another craft item (like a decoupage box, etc.) and selling it as a craft, without her written permission. Thank you.  Questions?  Email us
If you are interested in purchasing *original paintings* of any of these prints, please email.  Some are still available.

We don’t have any products to show here right now.

Another of Carol's crafts...
Fiber Crafts (a.k.a. Twisted Spinstress)
Carol came from a family where pretty much all the womenfolk (and some men) knew/learned how to sew, knit, crochet, embroider, stitch, quilt, etc., from a very early age.  Hand-spinning yarn from raw wool fiber for knitting/crocheting however, is a craft she learned later in life and has been enamored with ever since! Finished hand-knit or crocheted goods, and on occasion, spun art yarns are currently available at her Etsy shop, however we will be making a store for them HERE soon, ...again, for one-stop shopping!
