Born in Brooklyn, NY, Carrie is an artist, stylist, fashion designer and illustrator, singer/songwriter and columnist.
Upon graduating from John Dewey HS, she 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 she went on to design for Anne Klein Design Studio in Manhattan and eventually branched out designing handbags and business products.
Her many muses and forms of expressions include songwriting, singing, drawing, photography, collage, jewelry design, fashion stylist, writing, and pet portraiture.
Upon moving to Nashville, she 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 her work labeling her a Renaissance woman.
Her fashion illustrations and fine artwork continues to be shown in several Nashville galleries and can be found in numerous private collections.
Carrie created a successful recurring Fashion Camp for children at the Gordon JCC and for the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to coincide with their Italian Fashion Exhibit in 2015.
For the past 19 years she has been the curator for the art galleries at the Gordon JCC in Nashville.
