About

Artist Bio: Carrie Martinez

Welcome to my shop! My name is Carrie Martinez and I am a self-taught painter living and creating in beautiful Florida with my beloved husband of 16 years and our two sons. Our beginnings were the beginning of my journey as an artist. I left my job in Film Production to get in touch with nature, living on a sailboat and then the mountains. It was during this time that I found my passion for painting...meditating for hours on the beauty of a tropical sunset or a grove of giant Redwood Trees.

My collection of acrylic paintings are filled with symbolic and visionary messages of love, transcendence, wisdom, power, and reflections of the beauty and spirit of nature. My favorite subjects are owls and birds, but I often paint portraits of women as intuitive, powerful, and wise beings. I like to paint traditional figurative and lifelike illustrations of my subjects, and then add a touch of the unexpected such as contrasting vibrant colors, ethereal washes of dripping paint, and spiritual symbolism.

Ideas of subjects to paint come to me constantly, either by what I see in my world or what comes to my subconscious through meditation or dreams. I often paint intuitively, without planning too much what I will paint. Each painting may start with a certain idea, but then takes on a life of it's own, evolving into whatever my hand is guided to create. I like to create art that is soulful and empowering, as well as subjects that cause the viewer to question their innermost beliefs on reality and spirituality. Art has the ability to heal, and I try to give the viewer more insight into their world in a way that encourages them to shine brighter.

I am inspired by creative people in general and by so many artists throughout time. I am inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse for his beautifully deep portrayal of mythology. I am inspired by the brutal honesty of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and the definitive style of Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka. I am especially inspired by visionary artists like Gilbert Williams, Alex Grey, Amanda Sage, and Autumn Skye, and so many others creating empowering images of our spiritual connection to each other and the planet. I am also inspired by female graffiti artists like Herakut and Faith 47. It is the latter two artists that inspired me to bravely enter the world of live performance painting, and I can regularly be found creating art in front of an audience at music venues and festivals.

Everything you see in my Etsy Shop was created by me, the artist. I handle all aspects of my business from painting to printing to shipping, and have been selling internationally on Etsy for 5 years. At first I called my shop Cara Mia Bella, a nickname my mother has used for me since I was a baby (Italian for "my beautiful beloved"). I have since changed it to avoid confusion with myriad other shops with "bella" in the title.

The next adventure for me and my husband is the recent opening of Visionary CrossFit in Gainesville, FL. We have combined our passions by creating a unique gym with an art gallery on the walls. Currently we feature over 13 famous and local artists as well as my entire collection of paintings. Here is where my art studio currently resides, so visitors can see some live art while getting a workout. My husband and I have also been collaborating on painting murals all over town, 3 of which are on the Visionary CrossFit building. I am enamored with creating art in public and sharing my creative vision with as many people as I can.
