Biography from Paul Edelstein Studio and Gallery:

Billy Price Carroll  (b.November 27, 1920- d. March 15, 2011)

Drawn to art since age six, she had her own studio for over 30 years.  For more than 20 years she taught Saturday Art Classes to young students who won many regional and national prizes. 

She did Western art in oil, watercolor and pastel, notably portraits and landscape painting with Chinese brush and ink (last pages); also sculpture.  Her works are owned in the United States, Europe and Asia.  She has lectured for many years.
Her educational background includes Miss Hutchinson's School For Girls, Memphis, TN., Memphis Academy of Art: Farnsworth School of Painting (MA. and FL.);  Academia Delle Belle Arte (Florence, Italy); private studies in European Galleries, and museums, more recently, intermittent work for eight years with five Chinese artist-professors.

Through Mrs. Carroll's active schedules for portraiture allowed little time for exhibitions, Mrs. Carroll  held over 35 one-man showings of her work, all invitational, in public museums, art galleries, institutions and art associations.

Her professional affiliations included Memphis Brooks Art Gallery League, Memphis, TN., National Pen Women, Washington.  For some years shewas listed in the Marquis National Publication Who's Who of American Women and was listed in Who's Who In America.

Mrs. Carroll's portraits especially are widely known.  Among them are depicted distinguished jurists, physicians, scientists, political figures, great ladies in full array or wind-blown disarray; fisherman, hunters, stage or circus performers; rocking chair characters, international writers, educators, many others and children galore!  Unlike most portraits, her work is done from life and her own sketches, not photographs unless posthumously.

Billy Price Carroll died at age ninety on March 13, 2011.
