"Earth Art is a fine arts business focusing on large-scale participatory art installations and murals."
Hello! I’m Carrie, and my mission is to inspire action.
Growing up in my practical German from Russia, North Dakotan family, I never dreamed I would become an artist. It took many years of slow starts, painful openings, failure, unfathomable success, and a complete undoing to fully embrace the artist and change-maker within.
This journey changed my life in ways I never imagined. I had to set aside fear, set aside judgement, and trust that the process of unfolding would take me to where I needed to be.
Today, courage, collaboration, connection, and creativity are my guiding principles.
Pulling from many years of experience as a naturalist and environmental educator, my work focuses on creating solutions to complex social and environmental issues. At the same time, my work ethic, deeply rooted in building and farming, grounds my practice. I continually push myself to learn and grow, especially where it is uncomfortable.
I am an artist, wife, mother, sister, daughter, collaborator, educator, activist, change-maker. All of this informs my work.
I just happen to make public art.
