Biography


Having always been a creator of one form or another, Carrie's passion for oil painting was rekindled in 2014 after being introduced to the impressionistic style and the art of seeing.  Still life and plein air painting allows for full immersion into the subject matter and surroundings. Carrie also enjoys creating and sharing whimsical watercolors, connecting with the playful imagination of children and adults alike.
 
Her formal education years were spent in the natural sciences, followed by interesting careers in natural resources, environmental education, tourism, and consulting. Her day jobs currently include working as an environmental consultant and being "mom" to her young daughter. She lives in Taos, New Mexico where she is spoiled with brilliant skies, dramatic thunderstorms, mountains, and adobe architecture.
