Meet Carrie

My favorite book is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
If money were no object, I’d travel through Europe and the US to soak up new scenery and sketch and paint what I see.
My hidden talent is making something out of nothing, from using up leftovers to make a meal or turning recycled paper into a work of art.
