I believe in the power of discovery… finding yourself and your true passions.
I’m Carrie Sanderson artist, writer and explorer, Edinburgh-based but working internationally with a passion for discovering the beauty in the world around me – and for helping others make their dreams come true, create a life they love and the courage to live it.
Exploration and discovery are what drives me in my art, my writing and inspiring others to follow their hearts.
I’ve been on a lifelong journey to understand what I care about and what I have love for – I want to tell you more and also guide you on your own path to creative happiness.
I have much to share so let me show you around.
I’m excited to tell you about my exclusive – and free – pen and ink drawing “Playful Robin” that I’m offering as a gift to you.
I am pleased to share that some of my artwork is available for purchase! Please look around and get in touch if you have any questions.
WHERE TO START
Adventure. Nature. Beauty. Creativity.
These are the things that inspire me and are reflected in my art.
I’m an artist with a passion for wildlife and nature.
I believe that beauty can be found in every detail and discovered in every moment. My artwork represents those finer details I see around me and presents a unique perspective born of my personal experiences and my nomadic, cross-cultural background.
If, like me, you find joy in discovering the detail in the beauty around you, then head over to my Art page to see examples of my latest artwork and please come back to see new pieces as I complete them.
READ (AND WRITE) ALL ABOUT IT
From a young age, I travelled a lot. My father worked for the European Space Agency and attended international conferences around the world. My family often tagged along and so I was lucky to experience different cultures and countries from an early age. At 18, I moved to the UK from The Netherlands, I spent a summer in the US and then a gap year in New Zealand.
These experiences have also influenced my writing, which has become one of my greatest adventures – of discovery, exploration, and resilience. An everlasting adventure drawing on my inner strength and resources.
My writing is about where I come from and who I became.
Read more about my journey to self-discovery and some of the things I’m currently writing about on my Writing page.
IF YOU NEED MY GUIDANCE TO REMEMBER YOUR CREATIVE SELF
What do you really love? What do you find joy in? How do you embrace what you love in your life?
What do you really want?
These are the questions that I asked myself many years ago and unlocking the answers gave me the power to acknowledge my inner voice, remember my creative self and find the freedom to express myself creatively.
Were you creative once upon a time? For some reason, did you then stop?
I’d love to help you remember that side of yourself. I’d love to guide you as you start to explore and discover things about yourself along the way.
