Carrie Pittman Hill adds fine art to Homewood
Carrie’s art journey began seven years ago as a creative outlet. While she was doing well in her job as a financial advisor, she missed the creativity and self-expression of painting. She started painting during her free time, but that hobby quickly grew into a successful business.
“I never expected to sell anything or for anyone to see any of my work. I just loved how painting made me feel.”Carrie Pittman Hill
Three years later, Carrie decided to pursue painting as a full-time job. She’s worked with clients to create works of art that add life to their space through canvases, handbags, pillows, wallpaper and more. Plus, you may have seen her pieces in outlets like Better Homes & Gardens and HGTV.
A new home in Homewood
CANVAS by Carrie Pittman Hill will be in a prime location in Homewood near the Valley Hotel and favorite spots like Edgar’s Bakery and the Little Donkey.
“I love the charm of Homewood. It feels like a young, sophisticated part of Birmingham without being exclusive.”Carrie Pittman Hill
CANVAS’s grand opening is on Tuesday, August 3
At CANVAS, you’ll be able to find Carrie’s paintings in prices ranging from $30 to $5,000. Plus, you can find home goods from other independent makers:
“CANVAS wasn’t necessarily planned—it’s kind of popped up organically which is super exciting. I moved into a new house two months ago and started noticing the elements that created beauty.
I thought about opening a space with my work and having the things that I love that make a lifestyle. That’s what makes me super excited about CANVAS—meeting people and sharing those things with them.”Carrie Pittman Hill
