Running through the forests, splashing in streams, and frolicking on the plains of Montana was where self-taught artist, Carrie Kohles spent her childhood and first discovered the magic of the horse and the land and her desire to capture them on paper. Following a career in Interior Design, Carrie left her field to pursue the arts. She is best known for her large-scale works on paper in acrylic and Chinese ink involving a mounting and varnishing process that she has developed and refined throughout the years.
Carrie’s work has won awards in national and international art shows, was featured in two solo shows, and been included in several museum exhibits. She is currently represented in Austin, TX. She lives with her husband and two children in a house along the Sun River just outside of Great Falls, Montana where she still frolics and splashes when she’s not in her studio or messing around with her horses.
