Marae Carr, Artist
It is easy to be inspired by the stunning Northwest with the water, trees, mountains and ample sky for dreamy clouds. The reflections of each element within the other ignite ideas that flow onto my canvases. I was born and raised in Moscow, ID. The vast fields of The Palouse and the changing colors with the seasons are etched into my heart and are often in my work. My perspective is interpreted as colorfully abstract landscapes using acrylics, oils, sharpies and paper. I also love flowers and I love the feel of a fresh, inky sharpie on canvas as I create a balance of light and dark. It is like meditation. It is my practice of letting go of expectations and following my intuition. The Art of Allowing.
I get to live and play in beautiful Coeur d’ Alene, ID with my hubby and 2 amazing kids. They make me smile endlessly and put up with my art taking over our house.
