About My Work:

​Carrie’s artwork references elements of nature by focusing on the rare, overlooked, and often disregarded. She also incorporates texture into her artwork in order to create a psychological struggle within the viewer; although traditionally it is socially unacceptable for viewers to physically touch artworks that are on display, her textured paintings provoke an overwhelming desire for the viewer to reach out and feel the surface of the artwork in order to to qualm their curiosity and feels some of the ridges and grooves of the media. This desire places the viewer at an impasse where they have to decide whether or not to control their tactile impulses by restraining their desire to further experience the artwork on a physical level.
