Carrie Leigh Dickey

Founding Artist

Carrie Leigh Dickey is a trained oil painter (BA in studio art with a concentration in oil painting from Salem College), yet she mainly works in acrylics. She likes experimenting in order to make acrylic paint function as oil paint. Subsequently, she loves to create marks with anything that is not a paint brush including her fingers, old credit cards, and aluminum foil. She can often be found removing paint from a canvas with a garden hose. Carrie is inspired by nature and young children’s raw and organic approach to art. She is married to Luke, and they have a lovely daughter named Luscinda.


“I can't begin to express to you how thrilled I am with your painting! That will always be a treasure to me, and I can't wait to hang it at home. It is so rich in symbolism which makes it incredibly meaningful to me! You are a true wonder.”—Owner of one of Carrie Leigh Dickey's artworks
