Bonjour !
Carole Da-Cruz was born and raised in the south of France. Her adventurous spirit brought her to Los Angeles in the mid 90's where her European sensibility and interest in creating art with various mediums led her to an apprenticeship in the art of decorative painting. Carole created The French Brush twenty years ago and her immense passion for her work continues to this day. She loves the collaborative process with her clients and their satisfaction and happiness with the end result brings her true joy and gratitude.
Carole is a foodie and loves the outdoors activities. When she is not painting you may find her rock climbing, playing beach volleyball or shopping at her local farmer's market !
