Carol Ysla Battrell is an artist and gallerist in Wilmette, Illinois. She provides portrait photography for her clientele while presenting gallery exhibitions in her elegant space at 150 Laurel Avenue in Wilmette (1/2 block from the Linden Avenue Metra station).
She has an excellent eye for painting, photography and sculpture and offers work that is well-crafted, relevant and sometimes whimsical. Her opening receptions have been packed, for the most part. She sees some reticence in buyers due to the recession, but says that people are still looking at art and buying what moves them.
In addition to her work as a photographer/portrait artist, Carol creates exquisite, intricate drawings that are both folkloric in appearance and oddly obsessive.
