I feel like I was born with a paintbrush in my hands thanks to my Mum, Sue, a mixed media artist. While not having any formal training, art has surrounded and always been a part of my world. Exhibitions I have been a part of include: She Went Wild Women's Adventure Expo, Gosford Regional Gallery, Central Coast Festival of Arts, UON, Raw Artist, The Edwards and more. Works are in private collections in the US, UK, Germany, Niue, Vanuatu, Canada and New Zealand. From helping my Mum run art lessons from our garage, I ended up running an art school for children, which was indeed one of the greatest privileges of my life. In 2014, my mum, sister and I accidentally set up an art studio after being asked to exhibit in a showcase in Newcastle. Over time, we have probably become each other's greatest influences and have a consistent theme of 'Women and the Wild'. To check out more of our work and art for sale, visit www.studiocarragher.com
