artist bio

Carrie, a visual artist currently based in Hoquiam, Washington, has always called the Northwest home. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1993 from Whitman College in Walla Walla, where she was privileged to study art under Keiko Hara. There she was introduced to Book Arts as a means of expression—a foundation that continues to influence the permutations of her art-making. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows locally and juried shows nationally, while her artist’s books are held in the library collections of Baylor, Indiana and Yale Universities.

Carrie practices her calling from a tiny home studio and scoots out-of-doors whenever possible. She also maintains a color consulting practice, developing paint schemes for residential and commercial clients, and still occasionally exercises her floral design skills for special events. She enjoys the company of books, her husband John, and a couple of cats, who like to investigate works in progress.
