Carrie began sewing as a child making clothes for her dolls and as a teenager made much of her own clothing, sometimes embellishing with embroidery or appliqué.
After graduating from Ohio University with a degree in studio arts, concentrating in ceramics, drawing, and fiber, Carrie joined the art fair circuit selling a line of hand painted clothing.
After starting a family and choosing to stay home, she pursued a career in watercolors by taking classes at the Cleveland Institute of Art. After a few years she began selling her work and in 2002 she designed a line of Ohio Bicentennial Barn stationary.
Carrie enjoys bicycling, hiking, camping, and gardening, which often serve as sources of inspiration for her designs. She currently resides in Medina County with her husband, two cats and 2 pet chickens and one old bunny.
