Background:

Carrie Zeidman is a digital artist and photographer whose passions are photography, art, travel, and history, all of which are found in her artwork.

Her paintings start with a mood, an emotion, or a memory of some kind. Using color and figure, she finds a way to transfer that mood, emotion, or memory onto the two-dimensional surface of the painting. When finished, a successful piece is able to evoke the original feeling in the viewer. She likes how opposing elements work off of each other, so she tries to incorporate that contrast into her subject matter.

Carrie lives in Cupertino, California with her husband Bob, who is also an author of several books. She lives on a mountain top that affords her a different breathtaking view of the sunrise over the Santa Clara Valley every morning, providing endless artistic inspiration.

In November of 2009 Carrie’s painting depicting the fall of the Berlin Wall was put on permanent exhibit at the Checkpoint Charlie Museum (Mauermuseum) in Berlin, Germany. Carrie attended a celebration of the fall of the Berlin Wall marking the twentieth anniversary of this historic event.

Carrie has won numerous awards for her artwork, and was named Cupertino Distinguished Artist of the Year in 2012.

Carrie’s series, “Ghosts” was conceived during a trip to Poland and Israel in the spring of 2008. While visiting the death camps in Poland she was struck by the overlapping of the past and present in her view of the camps. She spent two years working on transferring those images in her mind to the canvas. After the Holocaust Series was complete, she decided to expand the project to include other tragic events in human history, and in December of 2015 her book Ghosts - Images of War was completed. Carrie is a tenth generation Californian and a fourteenth generation American. Many years of researching her extensive family history, traveling to historic battle grounds, and creating her unique art all come together in her first book. The book contains the original Holocaust images along with images from the Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, and WWII.
