JOY, CREATIVITY & pATTERN DESIGN
mY LITTLE PLACE OF JOy
Welcome to my corner of the web. I'm really glad you're here and you found it in the sea of everything.
My little website is growing as I add more stories and more images.
My name is Carrie and I am about making art, spreading joy and being interested in the world.
I believe that art has so much power to transform, to heal, to connect and it allow ourselves space to dream and think about the mysteries surrounding us. Why do we make art anyway? There are countless reasons.
I believe in slowing ourselves down, focusing attention and intention. I am trying to practice this. I often fail.
I also believe in fun, laughter and cracking a good (often badly timed) joke. I laugh a lot and I laugh loudly.
I hope to share my often messy process, challenge myself to some big projects and be open about my art process.
I have taught myself to draw, to paint and to make patterns over the past several years and I believe strongly that anyone has the capacity to learn a new skill, new craft, new ideas and new ways of thinking.
I hope that you find my space nourishing and insipiring.
