Carrie Shryock is an artist, illustrator and appreciator of nature. She grew up on a farm in central Missouri where she spent her childhood picking bouquets of wildflowers and exploring the wide open prairie under a big cloud filled sky. She still loves visiting wild and beautiful places, watching thunderstorms roll across the prairie and sleeping under the stars. It's the colours of the landscape, the changing seasons and the beautiful complexity of the natural world that fuels her work.
