I am Carrie Leigh Dickey. I am an artist, designer, and marketer who comes alongside individuals, non-profits, and corporations to help them clearly articulate who they are, what they do, and why it matters so that they can reach their fullest potential. I am an innovative thinker!
Though a trained oil painter (BA in studio art with a concentration in oil painting from Salem College), I work mainly in acrylics. I like experimenting in order to make acrylic paint function as oil paint. Subsequently, I love to create marks with anything that is not a paint brush including old credit cards and aluminum foil, and I can often be found removing paint from a canvas with a garden hose.
I am the winner of one PICA award and three Best-of-the-Best awards including the prestigious 2011 Best-of-the-Best Program Winner – Digital Trailblazer award for my visionary admissions marketing campaign for Salem College. My design work spans from graphics to website to interior to museum. My most recent museum design job was the Boys School exhibit at Old Salem Museums and Gardens. I was also the interior designer for Current Coworking.
I am the owner of Artfolios. Artfolios—a Winston-Salem based online fine art gallery—celebrates, showcases, and promotes artists in the Winston-Salem area. Our personalized approach to art collecting is three-fold: we curate an online art gallery offering a hand selected collection of fine art originals; we collaborate for corporate art installations; and we individually consult patrons helping them find the perfect art match.
Together with my family…
My family is most important. They are my greatest cheerleaders. Each of us is creative in our own way. I appreciate that we can challenge and encourage each other. I love how much fun we have together. And we get a kick out of creating unique photographic memories.
Just for fun…
I am an avid supporter of the arts and can often be found on and off stage at local theatrical productions. I serve on the board for Spring Theatre.
