original art by Carrie Pill
Hi! My name is Carrie Pill and I am a painter and an outdoor adventurer.
Well for as long as I can remember, chasing curiosity in art and the great outdoors have been my life’s most fulfilling endeavors.
Nature provides me with solace and sparks my imagination. Art is a place of endless possibility and self expression.
Why do I ski and mountain bike?
I love dancing with gravity and challenging myself physically and mentally up and down painting-worthy mountains.
Sharing my art, coaching mountain biking, writing, teaching painting and building community have been enormously rewarding ways to give back and help perpetuate these beloved outlets.
...in lifting others up....that if you continually give, you continually have...that art and the great outdoors have tremendous healing power...we are never too old for laughter, curiosity and play.....that kindness and positivity are powerful forces often underestimated....and I believe that Mother Earth is filled with unbelievable, irreplaceable beauty worth fighting for.
By painting I hope to encourage outdoor exploration and creative expression...and I hope to put a little light into our world.
More about the me:
I grew up in Northern New York State. I graduated from Green Mountain College with a BFA in Studio Art. My work is in private collections predominately here in the United States. For the last two decades I’ve made Central Vermont my home with my husband Justin.
We have a house that’s rarely tidy, two border collies who play and love with everything they have and two entertaining house cats.
Most of my work is painted in my home studio but I do love to challenge myself with plein air painting. I have had illustrations published in Northern Woodlands Magazine as well as murals installed at the Long Trail Brewery and Vermont Institute of Natural Science(VINS). I am an active member of the Brandon Artists Guild. I currently live in Rutland, Vermont.
Thank you for viewing my work!
