Carrie Vielle is a faculty member with the Interior Design Program at Spokane Falls Community College . She is known for her humanistic, romantic, and emotional interpretation of the human form while using mixed media on canvas.

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.
