As someone who has always been captivated by the West, contemporary artist Carrie Fell uses the high country as a source of inspiration. Fells’ art does not attempt to depict a Western lifestyle, but rather an illusion and spirit of the West. Her dramatic use of color and line give life and feeling to her faceless subjects, from longhorns to cowgirls. Through her work, Carrie tells the traditional stories of Western art, stories of cowboys and cowgirls and horse and the infinite sky.
A native of Denver, Carrie Fell began her professional career as an artist in 1985. She studied interior design in college and remnants of design work are intrinsic to her art. Her use of color, line and negative space also reflect her early training.
Her works are included in numerous gallery and invitational exhibitions annually and she remains active in charitable causes serving both through her donations and time. Carrie’s painting titled “Crazy Mountain Saddle Slickers” was acquired in 2007 by Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, for its permanent collection.
