(Here are the things I use everyday to make art!
"I have several of Carrie Tasman's luscious and beautifully personal artworks in my home. The simple complexity of color and movement are amusing and fresh even after years of holding my gaze."
Art & gardening
I am a gardener as well as a painter, so florals, leaves and atmosphere are in most of my paintings...sometimes realistic flowers, but just as often, impressions of blooms built with dots and visual textures. I want my art to feel lush and generous, to create a sensory experience for myself, and for the viewer. I am told my paintings make people feel happy, and that makes me happy.
My muses are Matisse, my flower garden and my dogs Chamois, Tully, and Lulu. I live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. My work is collected and commissioned worldwide. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Oregon State University.
