Carrie began taking photographs when she was 11, and later earned her BFA in 1996 and an MFA in 2000, majoring in photography. She specialized in darkroom and historical processes and produced an entire thesis exhibit from a medium format pinhole camera that she constructed. Following grad school, she started teaching darkroom photography at a college level, and then moved into teaching both studio art as well as digital photography to grades K-12. Within the past two years she returned to shooting photographs with the intention of producing bodies of images. While returning to shooting photographs on a regular basis, she began to work on the Strength Source Project with the intent of empowering women, encouraging reflection, and fostering connections via the pairing of portraits and stories about our sources of strength.
