CAREY MAXON is an artist. She has pursued a variety of professional paths; as sources of information to enrich her work and as means to support it. Her absolute commitment to the contemplative and expressive requirements of artistic production have led her to her best teachers.
Born in 1978 in Northern California, she moved to New York City to attend Barnard College. She graduated with honors from the Visual Art/Art History department; and then went to work on a farm in Italy.
In 2003, a museum curator saw Carey's work at one of the infamous Sunday salons with Louise Bourgeois. In this longstanding tradition, artists were asked to bring a sample of their work to the artist's house. Within the following year, Carey's drawings were purchased by the Modern Museum of Art, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art and the Brooklyn Museum. Still set on becoming a Jungian Analyst, Carey earned an MA in Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology while drawing full-time.
Ms. Maxon's suite of prints "USA-USB" was included in "Marks Made: Prints by American Women from the 1960s to the Present" a 2015 show at the Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her drawing "Jolie Holland and her 8 Fold Path" was included in the 2009 show "Isolation and Connectedness" at the Spencer Museum of Art, at the University of Kansas. Her first interview was with Sara Radin.
