Carrie Disrud

sponsored by Jane Gardner Interiors

Inked with equal measures of confidence and whimsy, Disrud’s paintings and illustrations puzzle together bright shapes like stained glass, yielding images that might be fairy tales, or just scenes of every day wonder.

i love the number 1962
it’s the year i was born in rolla, north dakota
– practically the geo-center of north america… very cool.

i have lived in sunny key west for 34 years
i live with my hubby, three wonderful sons, 3 cats, 1 dog & a bunny

i am an ovarian cancer survivor
with all its ups and downs there was a powerful feeling of being inspired
by all those around me
this helped create the art that i want to share with the world
