Carole Caroompas's works are inspired by terrifying yet fascinating childhood fairy tales. Following the recent research and interpretation of fairy tales in the 1990's, Caroompas plays with the tie between fairy tales and the human psyche. Carole Caroompas studied and researched myths and legends of the past as well as contemporary myths that exist today. Carole Caroompas's exhibit represents the fairy tales of Cinderella, Snow White, Briar Rose, and many others.
