Hello everyone. My name is Carie Varner. I've been art-ing for a very long time, oil painting since high school. I graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago IL with a BFA in Life drawing and a minor in sculpture.

Art and I have a on again, off again love affair, but this latest roump has been 7 + years and I have not wanted to put down the paint brush yet. Everything changed after having my daughter, and I want to bring as much creativity and joy into the world as I can. And to do that, I make art.

As any artist can tell you, having a defined place to create freely is a blessing. I have found a studio that my patrons here help me rent. I am forever grateful for the help I am receiving, and can't wait to further my art career!
