Carrie Hollister is a self taught artist, most influenced by a mentorship with the late American painter, Loren Maciver. Having traveled extensively, seeking countries known for their textile traditions, her work often reflects the vibrant color combinations and random patterns found in weavings and embroideries. Whether painting a gypsy campsite in the Rajasthani desert,  a marketplace in Peru, a cafe in Tangier, or a Mayan jungle ruin- Hollister's pictures are most concerned with a sense of place. 

Carrie lives on two coasts- the Pacific and the Mexican Caribbean- and continues to visit new and favorite locations around the world.
