Carrie L Vielle

Mixed-Media Installation ~ Found Object Sculpture ~ Collage ~ Charcoal

Carrie grew up in Victoria, B.C, in a family immersed in the arts. Her family members include fine artists, photographers/film makers, theater and film actors, jazz and rock musicians and composers, all of whom enriched Carrie’s art education.

Carrie holds a double bachelors degree in Studio Art and Art History from Eastern Washington University. In 2003, she finished her Master of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Art History Studies.

Professionally, Carrie teaches art and design classes for the SFCC Interior Design Department. She also works as a tour guide for custom art and cultural workshop tours in Europe each summer. One of Carrie’s career highlights took place in the Spring of 2004 when she was awarded a teaching position in Florence, Italy to teach both college-level Drawing and Art History.

“It was one of the most life-altering, inspiring times of my life. The experience of walking past Michelangelo, Donatello and Ghiberti on my way to work every day was a monumental gift - one I’ll never forget.”

“I believe that personal expression is fundamental to healthy living. In each of my works, I strive to provide an original statement, a suggestion of a human moment that aesthetically challenges conventional expectations in visual media. My primary focus in this collection of new work was to capture the character, complexity and intimacy of our moments of quiet reflection.”

Carrie currently lives in Farmington, Washington with her husband, bonus son, llama and alpaca.


Jennifer Scott

Jennifer Scott is a native of Wyoming and graduated with her Bachelors of Fine Art with an emphasis in Still Based Media from Columbus College of Art and Design in 2002.

She then went on to receive her Masters of Fine Arts, emphasis in Photography from Washington State University in 2006.

Currently Jennifer works in both photography and mixed media, and resides in Spokane, Washington with her husband and daughter.

Recent accomplishments include showing in the 2007 Pingyao International Photography Festival, and guest lecture for Washington State University. Upcoming events include an exhibition and workshop at Spokane Falls Community College.

Jennifer collects and surrounds herself with once cherished, but now forgotten or discarded mementos that were left behind by someone. The mystery of a scratch across a photograph, the mark of time formed in the absence of paint from a dolls face, or the gestures of passion and pain in a lost letter are all possibilities when creating the surreal worlds inspired by these objects.
