Carrie Dinah-Rivah identifies with the traditions of the Northwest school of painters, blending abstraction and form in dreamlike layers. Her paintings are based on stories of otherworldly experiences people have had with wild animals. These stories present themselves in the most mysterious and amazing ways — whether in a dream, an odd encounter, a superstition, or extreme coincidence. These stories become paintings.
This year Carrie completed her first mural based on her paintings of horses. The 60ft x 8ft mural is in Bow, WA on the side of an barn. She is currently in the planning stages for more mural paintings the Seattle area.
