She teaches workshops and private classes. She is also a co-host and contributor for the Artists Helping Artists #1 blog radio art podcast.

Carrie has always had a fascination with watercolor. She believes that the difficulty of the medium challenges her and the transparent layering can not be replicated with any other medium. She writes “I challenge myself to push the medium by creating dazzling saturated colors and let the white of the paper sparkle through to create my dramatic lights. I love the process of being a still life painter. Conceptualizing the perfect painting in my head, the hunt for the props, setting up my finds with perfect dramatic natural lighting and seeing my idea come to life. I love to make every day objects come to life in a new and creative way. My intention is for the viewer to be captivated by the beauty and light of the piece and for it to give them an amazing visual experience bringing their story and memories to the painting.” http://carriewallerfineart.com/
