Nice to meet you!
I'm the Karrie of Karrie'd Away Creations.
I was born and raised in a wonderful patch of the world nestled on the East coast of Canada called Fredericton. Growing up in a rural area I was surrounded, and fascinated by nature. My dad would take me on long hikes in the woods, teaching me about the forest.
Ever since I can remember I've enjoyed creating and crafts of all kinds. I knew that when I grew up I wanted to be an artist. Throughout school I doodled away in the margins of my notebooks, decorating the outside of my binders with typography and illustrations. I took all the art classes I possibly could while in high school and applied to the Foundation Visual Arts Program at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design.
At NBCCD I earned diplomas in Photography and Graphic Design. As a student there, my classmates and I were privileged to have use of a full darkroom, a complete photography studio, professional printing equipment, and industry-standard design software.
The things that interest and inspire me the most are the people, pets & places I love. I share my life with my family, my partner Jesse & our pets. The beautiful world around us has incredible sights and colours that we're fortunate to experience and enjoy.
