Artist: Carrie MaKenna
Medium: Acrylic, Oil Pastel
It is my intention to create art that portrays an experience of the world that cannot necessarily be seen. My paintings, drawings, and sculpture are generally the product of my spiritual and meditative pursuits. They are images of my experience of the intuitive senses that underlie, surround and penetrated the regular three-dimensional world we’re used to perceiving.
MaKenna’s formal education includes a BFA from Colorado State University in Graphic Design and Ceramics, and a MA in Counseling Psychology and Art Therapy from the Naropa University. Her artwork so far, spans thirty years and chronicles her journey through spiritual, psychological and artistic development. Carrie holds these three aspects of life as intrinsic. As one changes so do the others. You’ll find a wide variety of artistic styles in Carrie’s portfolio’s. She works primarily in acrylic on canvas and oil pastel on paper.
