Due to her remaking failures as a teen, it took much prodding by friends for her to consider trying it again with newer technologies. With their help and advice, she began painting in August of 1996, and remaking somewhat before that. She paints the base color with an airbrush, and finishes all details by hand. She now uses a heat gun and Martin Carbone "Gapoxio" epoxy for sculpting, and refers to a library of reference materials before starting any project. Most of Carrie's customized models have been simple customs, but she has completed three drastic customs, using "squished" Breyers for armatures. In addition, she recently released her first resin, one of which was featured in a performance package at the NAN 1998 Auction. Her work has won 3 Reserve Champs at NAN, as well as numerous Top Tens. She does not accept custom orders, but usually has pieces available for sale. She also has plans in the works for future limited edition resins.
Carrie is also an accomplished web master and has created many excellent web pages, all of which are a great asset to the hobby: Model Horse Sales Pages, Model Horse Links, Model Horse Classified Ads. Make sure to visit her own Portfolio too! She's written about how she created most of the models you'll see in this Gallery, and you'll be able to see larger images if you wish.
