Carollyne Yardley coined the term Squirrealism to describe her signature style of fine artwork using squirrel masks in paintings to create strange, transgene characters. The "mask" has become a symbol describing misfits, hiding behind animated personas, odd and beautifully unusual.
Through the meticulous and minute brushwork of pre-modernist oil painting traditions, Carollyne's work explores character development through the repetition of imagery, brand development, identity, memes, pop culture, and absurdity.
