About Carrie

I paint because I breathe.

I am self-taught, and have loved art my entire life. Fortunately, my mother (also an art lover and maker) exposed me to great museums in cities all over my home state of Texas in my childhood. I began collecting any local artists' works I could afford in my 20's, and painted for the first time in my 30's.  My experience is NOW, in these wonderful whirlwind years of learning that I am a painter. Thank you for joining the journey by checking out my work. 

I'm working a lot and regularly releasing new paintings. Follow Carrie Cole Art on Instagram (@carriecoleart) for updates!

I am based in Portland, Oregon, and can be contacted at carrie@carriecoleart.com or 503.804.8926.
