Primarily an abstract artist, Carrie’s work reflects a wide range of experiences and emotions that include, among other things: raising children as a single mom, working as a waitress, being in love, dealing with family tensions, confronting paranoia, resisting depression, managing the pain of arthritis, and embracing humor.  Whether on canvas or in clay, Carrie’s colorful imagery stems from her memories of childhood and are rendered in a childlike manner.

“My work allows me to release deep-seated fears and thoughts; even when I know that these fears are not real,” says Day.  “For instance, bugs in my work represent listening devices or the watchful eyes of another.  Having suffered from a history mental illness, this is my humorous take on a serious subject that has haunted me.”
