40: Carrie Marill

Carrie Marill was born in San Francisco in the late '70s. She was raised by a gun-toting dentist who, in the evenings, enjoyed doing doughnuts in a red 1982 Toyota Supra in his front yard. In 1994, she accidentally hit a bear in Yosemite Valley. In 2004, she was kidnapped by a handsome farmer and taken to Surprise! Arizona where she fell in love with farming and the previously mentioned farmer.

1. Name five things on your inspiration wall (real or imagined)
- Folk Art
- Trees
- Icebergs
- Red Headed Park Rangers
- A bumper sticker that says "Who Would Jesus Bomb?"

2. What was your last big project?
"The Splendid Table" a series where I painted all the animals I had ever eaten, in an effort to guilt myself into not eating them (it didn't work).

3. What's your next big project?

It's a secret, if I told you I'd have to do it.

4. Why do you do what you do?
It was the one thing that kept my attention in school and it's the best way I can continue learning more about the world.

5. What's something you want Phoenix to know about you (and if you're
game, what's something you don't want Phoenix to know about you)?

I escape Phoenix in the summer (I'm sorry). I can't take it, the heat makes me a Grumpelstiltskin.
