Carrie Ade

The world impresses me. The weather, the sea, flowing water, the mountains, forests and jungles which ornament the earth inspire me. I paint in a style of exaggerated realism, painting the botanical landscape in full detail, informed by my background in natural studies and conservation. I do not to work from photographs, but rather from my experiences observing my natural surroundings in rich detail.

I am originally from Salisbury VT. After many years overseas I’m back in the Green Mountain state, excited to join the arts community here. My work can be found in private and public collections in New Zealand, South Africa, Austraila, Switzerland and the US.
