I am an artist, stylist, fashion designer, singer/songwriter and seeker of all people places and things unique and authentic.
I was born in Brooklyn, NY.
Upon graduating from John Dewey HS I had the great fortune to receive a scholarship to study fashion design and art history at the Parson’s School of Design and The New School.
From there I went on to design for Anne Klein Design Studio in Manhattan and eventually branched out designing hand bags and business products.
My many muses and forms of expressions include songwriting, drawing, photography, collage, jewelry design and pet portraiture.
Upon moving to Nashville I designed a line of vests that were instantly snapped up by numerous country and pop music stars, including none other than Ringo Starr.
The Tennessean newspaper and Nashville Woman magazine have both written feature articles on my work labeling me a Renaissance woman, which is an honor I carry proudly.
My fashion illustrations and fine art work continues to be shown in several Nashville galleries and can be found in numerous private collections.
I created a successful recurring Fashion Camp for children at the Gordon Jewish Community Center and for the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to coincide with their Italian Fashion Exhibit in 2015.
For the past 15 years I have and continue to curate the art galleries at the Gordon Jewish Community Center.
My work as a fashion sylist and art director with my photographer son, Garrett Mills can be found at www.garrettmills.com and VogueItalia Photovogue / Garrett Mills and VogueItalia Photovogue / Carrie Mills.
