About Carrie's Art:
Wissler-Thomas was known as a painter of portraits and the human figure for the early part of her career, and as a part of Li Hidley's "Painting from the Model" class at the Art Association in the 1980's, she painted large canvases with Expressionist figures…her "Earth Mothers" and "Earth Fathers." An earlier series were her "Fashion" paintings, women with flowing drapery and intense colours. Since moving into Uptown Harrisburg in 1991, the artist has found the nearby Susquehanna River an inspiration, and since 1996, when she and her husband first travelled to Scotland, she has increasingly concentrated on capturing the wild Scottish landscape.

What ties all Wissler-Thomas's work together is the lyricism apparent in the figures, the portraits, the River scenes, and the Scottish landscapes. Indeed, her recent landscapes resemble abstract figures in the undulating curves of hills and burns. At Hood College, Wissler-Thomas researched her Honours Thesis on "Lyricism in Minoan Art," and the joie de vivre of that civilization continues to imbue all her work.

The collection on view on this website reflects paintings from the various series and subjects that Carrie Wissler-Thomas has created during the past years, and continues to create currently.
