Carrie Emma is an English-born artist who creates art in multiple media using fabric, papier-maché, canvas and rocks. Often made from found objects or recycled materials, her work is “alive with color and energy,” writes Liz Donovan in Morris/Essex Health & Life. “I love color, texture, patterns. I’m constantly inspired by nature. I literally can’t walk my dog without finding something beautiful that captures my attention, and I have to stop and take a picture. I’m happiest working in my studio, music blaring, sun on my back and my hands covered in paint, glue or sequins!” said Carrie.

Carrie graduated from the prestigious central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, England, with a degree in fashion and print, and was a senior print artist for a designer in New York City for many years. In addition to creating her own artwork, Carrie shares her talents inspiring local children in after school programs. For more information on her work visit www.carrieemma.com .

The Luna Gallery will be open one hour prior to performances of Roan @ the Gates: Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 3pm through February 24, as well as by appointment with the Luna Stage office. The exhibition will also be on display during the Luna Dinner Series event on Sunday, March 3 from 6-9pm, when Carrie’s newest large-scale acrylic painting will be auctioned off. The March 3 benefit is being presented in conjunction with The
United Tastes of America (formerly Syria Supper Club). For details and reservations about the Luna Dinner Series, please visit www.LunaStage.org/Dinner .
