Carol McCreary is a member of theKingsport Art Guild and has won awards in their Member Art Show and Fun FestFine Arts competition.  McCreary has beenworking on assemblages for about six years. Her art before that time was painting but she fell in love with usingantique and vintage oddities to tell a story. Another interest of McCreary’s is clocks and time.  That is why most of her pieces are in preelectronic clock cases or contain mechanical clock parts. 

Before retirement, McCreary was ateacher for eleven years in America, Canada, and the British Embassy School inMoscow.  She worked with teachers on howto use computers in their lessons and classrooms.  From computers to antique clocks seems a farfetch, but is all in one with a fascination in how things work!
