|Carrie A. Ventola
Do what you love and love what you do, always influenced by the beauty that nature provides you!
Raised in Tucson, Arizona and already a well-known artisan and craftsperson in New England,
Carrie’s desire to create beautiful land and seascapes took hold long before her relocation to
California in the 1990’s.
Her drive to create fully blossomed with her relocation to California. With her move to sunny San
Diego in 2001, she feels she has come full circle.
Carrie has been strongly influenced by a number of great Southwest, New England, and California
artists. Defined by her trademark umbrellas, her gentle and sunny style reflects the beauty,
optimism, and dreamlike qualities of Southern California.
She has participated in numerous juried shows at galleries, corporate facilities, and public
institutions throughout San Diego and Orange County, winning many best of show awards.
Her paintings are displayed in a variety of private collections and corporate offices, throughout the
United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
