About Carrie Goller
Carrie Goller was born and raised on Bainbridge Island. She recalls that during childhood she was advised to pursue a career in fine art – but it was a brush with mortality that finally shook her towards this dedicated path. Goller attended Northwest College of Art, and also studied with many master artists – including the classical painter Juliette Aristides, and plein air artists Jim Lamb and Ned Mueller. She has always been inspired by the organic, sensuous forms and colors and textures in nature. She leans towards impressionism – and enjoys experimenting with abstraction. Yet she also paints more traditional compositions, such as still lifes, landscapes, and other figural subjects. Goller works in a variety of media, including watercolor, oil, pastel, and encaustic (melted and pigmented beeswax). She paints mostly in her studios on Hood Canal and Bainbridge Island, but she can also be seen creating watercolors on cross-country flights! She owns and operates Carrie Goller Gallery in Poulsbo.
