Carie Varner has been art-ing for most of her life, including oil painting since high school. She graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago, IL with a BFA in Life Drawing and a minor in Sculpture.
Varner and art have a on again, off again love affair, but this latest roump has been 7 + years and she has not wanted to put down the paint brush yet.
“Everything changed after having my daughter, as such things do,” says Varner. “And I want to bring as much creativity and joy into the world as I can. To do that, I make art.”
Her main focus is oil, although she has started venturing into the “scary” world of water color. Art is about bravery sometimes she states. Varner enjoys working in oil paint to create unique images of pop culture icons and popular science-fiction creatures.
