Greetings and Welcome to ShadowPlay ArtWorks!

My art has been evolving for over 25 years with many winding paths along the way. As a young wife and mother of four children I created t-shirt art for two Maine screen printers. For many years I created wildlife art for Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife. I was also a pottery finish painter for a while. I then taught art at my childrens’ school for six years. Now I am embarking on a new phase of life~ doing what I love, creating art, full time. I am starting my own business of which there are three distinct areas:

Colored Pencil Portraits

I can capture that special pet forever in a life-like colored pencil portrait. You supply the photos, either digitally or by mail, (will be returned) and tell me about your pet. Together we can create a unique portrait that compliments your pet’s personality.

Realistic but creative art portraying a special time in the life of your loved one(s). Again, you supply the photos, either digitally or by mail, (will be returned) and tell me about personality and/or a special occasion. Satisfaction guaranteed!


Many of my IF&W pen & inks will be made into cards and prints. I am also drawing and painting other natural subjects and will be offering them as cards, prints and original paintings as well.


Paintings and Murals

My paintings in oil are created with a palette knife. I enjoy portraying Maine’s beauty in a loose and painterly manner. All paintings here are for sale. Please contact me if you are interested in any of them or would like to order a custom piece of art.

Creating interior murals is the latest addition to ShadowPlay. Over the past few years I have painted a few local murals after school hours. I am now able to expand this service to full time! I use interior house paint and acrylics. The design can be as simple or as complex as you would like it to be.

Carol Kutz has done a tremendous job in helping us in the artistic work in our 6,000 square foot children center at Bangor Baptist Church.  Her expertise and talent is often commented on by  parents who drop their kids off at the children center.  She has also done art projects for the morning sermons that have highlighted the message and made it easier for people to know God.  We are very appreciative of her God given talent and it has been a blessing for our ministry!! – Pastor Jerry Mick
