GREETINGS FROM CARRA
a work in process
My name is Carra Sykes I want to make neat things and stuff. Ever since I could pick up a writing utensil, I've been drawing and making. I want to build my skill-set through various forms of exploration and give back to the community by sharing helpful knowledge. The work should be fun and inviting, but also make people think. A picture book is a residency goal, but there is so much more that will be created. Things may get messy, but let's embrace that part of us. The only way to start is to actually start. We have to keep creative.

GO SEE NEAT THINGS - LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE
Throughout the year of residency, I will build a series of visual experimentations that stretch imagination and explore work in process. I will take field trips to meet with people in different fields to study their processes. Through experiences and a trust in the practice, I will create visuals that share stories and embrace the possible awkward. Whether that’s looking at things that exist and see them in a different way or using imagination to push the limits of how we naturally think.
