UK-based artist Carrie Stanley Smith works mainly with the medium of oil paints to create her expressive artworks. Carrie’s art is an interesting blend of figurative and abstract styles, often depicting human subjects and familiar environments but in unconventional ways. Her use of colour is particularly interesting, as she tends to use hues and tones that are more vibrant or saturated than they appear in reality. The result is somewhat surreal, lending her artworks a dreamlike and deeply emotional quality.
