Artist Carrie Marill's Studio Combines Consciousness and Community

The unflashy vibrancy and careful interior detailing of Carrie Marill's studio on Third and Garfield streets matches her calm and thoughtful demeanor.

With an overflowing bookshelf, a gold mine of paints, and an underused kitchen (there's a reason there's a paper cutter on the stove she explains), Marill's productive workspace proves to be the nest for her creations to take flight.

In October, Marill and her husband/fellow artist, Matthew Moore, purchased an 11-unit building, remodeled it, and transitioned the commercial space into Combine Studios.
