"Sometimes in life, you have to break-- to get through. " -Carrie

My surreal oil paintings hold a heavy story behind each piece. I share this story with those that I trust. It is delicate like porcelain.. It is fragile like glass. You can gaze through my self-portraits but you will never see what I see.

Detail image of my self-portrait oil painting titled: Breakthrough, oil on canvas, 4 x 4 ft (original painting Not For Sale)

Photograph by Carrie Smith Kilgore

I enjoy taking long walks every day to clear my mind & to look at flowers...the blue sky...the birds...everything... it is vital for me to take a step away from the chaos & just be...be outside & relax.. 🌼🙏🌞

The colors used in my artwork are inspired by colors in nature... this orange flower speaks to me... I love the shape of their petals in bright orange... I love the yellow in the center... & I appreciate the pop of green in the background... this flower- is a work of art... I find joy admiring the immense beauty natures brings us each day ... it’s important to take time to smell the flowers & enjoy their uniqueness 🧡

🦩I want to share this oil painting (in progress) with you...

John Hall @artbandit85 next to his painting of @kingjames 🤯 John is self-taught artist, and his painting of Lebron is truly something else- the complimentary colors, composition, and details of this painting really make it a stunning and iconic portrait. He’s so genuine, positive and on top of that he is a United States Veteran. 🇺🇸 In the near future, I’m going to create a painting of @artbandit85 & we will auction it off together & split the proceeds🙌

Carrie Kilgore

CARRIE KILGORE (b. 1991, Clearwater, Florida) lives and works in Saint Petersburg, Florida. She graduated with a BFA from Ohio University in 2014, with a focus in Painting and Drawing. Her signature large-scale oil portraits were influenced by Kehinde Wiley and Chuck Close.

Carrie creates oil portraits of other iconic artists that have positively impacted her life and studio practice. Frida Kahlo, Yayoi Kusama, Keith Richards and Lady Gaga are just a few of the artists that Carrie has painted. Her goal is to capture the essence of the individual. “I always start a painting with the eyes. Once they’re sunken into the canvas, you immediately begin to see and understand that person for who they are. And then I build out from there, and start piecing the face together. It’s a beautiful process to watch as a person comes to life on canvas.”

Carrie’s work has been collected nationally and internationally.

Her upcoming exhibit is in New York this September at the American Gold Cup Equestrian show.
