Carrie is an artist, illustrator, and appreciator of beautiful things. She grew up on a farm in central Missouri where she spent her childhood picking bouquets of wildflowers and exploring the wide open prairie under a big cloud filled sky. She still loves visiting wild and beautiful places, watching thunderstorms roll across the prairie, and sleeping under the stars. It's the colors of the landscape, the changing seasons, and the beautiful complexity of the natural world that fuels her work. 

Carrie is a founder and former owner of 1canoe2, a stationery and homegoods company, where she worked as the primary artist and illustrator, establishing the brand and guiding it creatively. After selling her portion of the company, she is exploring her own artistic vision, and pursuing partnerships on new projects. She is always experimenting and creating new things, so please check in often to see what she has been working on.

Carrie would love to hear from you! Please contact her if you are interested in working together, have questions, or just want to say hello.

She is currently unavailable for personal or wedding related commissions.
