Carrie Cook Profile picArtist Statement: 

I was once a graphic designer in New York City, a student of Disney in LA., and a teacher of art to mildly interested middle schoolers in Colorado. My most recent “real job” was as head of graphic design at the Dallas Zoo. The captivity of other species has helped inform my current position on animal rights, and is giving me a direction in my painting career. I’m now happily ensconced in Austin. I’m a signature member of both the Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation, both of which accept fewer than 500 artists worldwide.
