Artist Bio

Carrie Martinez is a self-taught visionary and surrealist artist, live performance painter, and muralist specializing in Goddess Art.  Using acrylic paint, she creates dreamlike subjects embellished with timeless beauty and magic realism to stir the imagination and inspire the soul. Her lifelong interest in meditation, lucid dreaming, astronomy, and mysticism are the basis for her art, and she often includes symbolism to convey this exploration. Her studio is in Gainesville, Florida, where she lives with her husband and two sons. Together they are the owners of Visionary CrossFit, a combination gym, gallery, and studio space that encourages the transformation of mind, body, and spirit through fitness, art and music.
