Carrie Wachter is an award-winning, internationally collected, self taught artist and designer who recently moved to Gainesville. Her acrylic paintings are filled with symbolic and visionary messages of love, transcendence, wisdom, power, and reflections of the beauty and spirit of nature. Carrie’s subjects range from owls and birds to portraits of women as intuitive, powerful, and wise beings. She combines traditional figurative and lifelike illustrations with a touch of the unexpected such as contrasting vibrant colors, ethereal washes of dripping paint, and spiritual symbolism. She enjoys painting live at art festivals and music venues, sharing her skill and inspiring others to create beauty. For more information, you can find Carrie on Facebook at “Art of Carrie Wachter”.
