Carrie-Ann Bracco received her B.A. from Columbia University, an MFA in Painting from the New York Academy of Art and a Masters of Science in Sustainability Management, also from Columbia University. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Carrie’s work has been included in exhibits at the New York Academy of Sciences, the National Arts Club, Flowers Gallery and Mark Miller Gallery. In 2011, she was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. In 2014, her artwork was included in The Figure, edited by Margaret McCann and published by Skira/Rizzoli Press.
“The majority of Carrie’s art is focused on our human relationship to our natural environment. Paintings and drawings have been inspired by travels in Peru, the Arctic Circle, and Patagonia. The paintings from these expeditions address the ethereal quality of these mythic and fragile landscapes.
Other artworks contemplate more accessible but quietly beautiful scenes closer to home, such as the reflective tide pools at Davis Park on Fire Island, the shimmering effect of snow and streetlights in Park Slope, Brooklyn and the woodland fields of upstate New York.”
