Carrie is a regular girl with a strong passion for art (and of course dogs). Originally from Newton MA, she graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder, majoring in both Art History and Studio Art. After leaving Colorado, Carrie went to work at a well-known Art Auction House in Manhattan for several years. It was there that she realized she wanted to create art rather than work behind it.
Carrie left the Art Auction House in the summer of 2014, and decided to work at a local wine shop, Vino Fine Wine and Spirits, near her apartment. She began drawing the owner's dogs for fun (who are frequently at the store). Client's of the upscale wine shop began to notice and inquire about commissions. Through this, Carrie pursued her passion and created an Instagram account (@CarrieDraws), dedicated to her dog portraits where she was quickly noticed. She now does commissions world-wide.
