Carrie Leigh Dickey

Owner and Visionary

Carrie Leigh Dickey, Owner and Visionary of Artfolios, is an artist, designer, and marketer. She has a BA in studio art with a concentration in oil painting from Salem College, and she mainly works in acrylics. Carrie's artwork is heartfelt, conversational, and symbolic. She is inspired by nature and young children’s raw and organic approach to art. In her art, she likes experimenting in order to make acrylic paint function as oil paint or as watercolor. Subsequently, Carrie loves to create marks with anything that is not a paint brush including her fingers, old credit cards, sponges, paper towels, and aluminum foil. She can often be found removing paint from a canvas with a garden hose. She has worked as a designer and marketer for over 20 years. Her design work spans from graphics to website to interior to museum. Her marketing campaigns are award winning. Carrie 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
