Wire Wrap Jewelry, Fine Art, & Graphic Design
-I pick up a pencil, paintbrush, or carving tool in order to escape from reality and create something that will bring me pleasure upon its completion. I often find myself creating art for others, hoping to immortalize people, places, or things that bring them joy. I aim to please my audience.
My current work includes drawings, paintings, photographs, sculpture, computer art, graphic design, jewelry, and mixed media. The drawings are studies of the human form, rendered with graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, or ink.
Originally from Beaufort, North Carolina, Carrie C. Benjamin currently resides in the city of Wilmington, North Carolina. The University of North Carolina at Wilmington is what drew her to the beautiful port city in 2011. It is there that she studied Studio Art after transferring from Carteret Community College in Morehead City, NC. One year later she met her husband Stephen and became the mother of their beautiful daughter, Scarlet.
Carrie finds joy and inspiration from music, meditation, and nature.
