Born in Cameron Missouri in 1957, Kyle Carroll has been a
ôstudent of the woods" since his youth. His art and the subjects
he paints are a reflection of a life long interest in American
history, and the outdoors. Researching his work and physically
experiencing the elements during living history events, treks into
the wilderness with his muzzleloader and re-enactments have
helped him develop an affinity with the hardy breed of men and
women who lived and died on the edge of civilization.
As a biologist, hunter, historian and re-enactor, Carroll brings a
unique perspective to his work. Carroll devotes time to research
his subjects before he begins work on a historical project.
Historical accuracy combined with Carroll's extensive
knowledge of frontier America and its natural history is reflected
in his paintings.

Carroll studied art in College before earning a Biology degree, but attributes much of his ability to what he
has learned to trial and error and the help from other artists. His work has been influenced by David Wright,
Tom Lovell and a host of other historical artists and friends.
Kyle Carroll lives with his wife Sharon on a wooded hill side above historic Lost Creek near Maysville,
