Guest Bio: 
Carrie Schmitt is an artist, author, and instructor who began painting as a therapeutic practice after being diagnosed with a life-threatening allergy to heat in 2009. 

 Today, Carrie leads online and in-person art workshops. Her art is sold in galleries and in private collections internationally and licensed for clothing, home décor, accessories, toys, and stationery.
