Meet the Artist: Carissa Wright

Meet Carissa Wright of Wright Art Graphic Design.

Carissa is a Graphic Designer and Fine Artist. She specializes in custom oil and acrylic paintings as well as photography and some custom designed Christian T-shirts.

     "Ever since I could hold a pencil in my hand I have been drawing and began painting classes when I was 13 years old. I attended the University of Montevallo  and majored in Art with a concentration in Graphic Design. Over the years, while working as a graphic designer, I have painted murals and custom art pieces for friends, family and even a few clients. In the spring of this year I finally gave up on the perfect dream studio and began painting in my garage among the garden tools. I guess you could say I have been creating some form of art whether it be graphic art, photo collages, sculpture or paintings my whole life."

     "I am most inspired by nature. I love everything organic.  Just taking a walk and snapping photos I find beauty and ideas in everything I see from the colors and textures in rocks, flowers, moss on the ground to the driftwood around my gardens."

     "I am a planner so I go into a project with a pretty clear idea of what I want the outcome to be but I do enjoy challenging myself and getting out of my comfort zone and just letting the end result be a surprise sometimes. I think some of my favorite pieces have been happy accidents."
