From the inspiration to creation to interpretation, there is nothing routine in Carol Ferony's work.

"It's an ongoing process," she said.

An artist all of her life, Ferony grew up just north of New York City before heading south to reside in DeFuniak Springs.

The artist has shown her work around the country, mainly the East Coast, in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Connecticut, South Carolina, and of course, Florida in the past 10 years.

While the move introduced her to new landscapes and scenery, which is often an inspiration for many area artists, Ferony has stayed true to her main body of work, which is abstract figures.

"I've always considered everything inspiring," said the painter. "I'm open to anything that comes along."

While the works of master painters and contemporary artists alike contribute to Ferony's creativity, hints of Picasso are evident in some of her pieces. She always tries to incorporate her own spin on her oil pastels.
