About the Artist:  

Carissa Sorensen is a Ripon College graduate with a minor in studio art, a horse trainer, and a stay-at-home mother of two.  Since a young age, she has loved playing with any art supply she could get her hand on.  Sorensen enjoys working in different mediums and gravitates towards a mixed-media approach.  Her passion is creating art about nature that speaks to the world’s sacredness around us.  Carissa especially loves creating work that features animals, as she feels they are guides and relatives in the natural world.

Professionally Sorensen has created commissioned works for friends and private collectors.  Illustrated children’s books, including Richard the Chicken Eagle, in 2020 and did the cover for North to Home by Crissi McDonald.  Carissa recently illustrated A Spotted Pony Parade Day, written by Kim Bond in 2022, and will attend Thrasher Opera House’s Spotted Pony Parade Day Book Signing event on Thursday, June 16, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., which is free and open to the public.

Sorensen lives with her husband and children in Ripon and an assortment of animals.  Her exhibit will be displayed at the Thrasher Gallery from May 2 to June 30.  The Thrasher gallery is located at 510 Mill St., Green Lake, WI, 54941. The gallery is open to the public on weekdays from 10 a.m. – to 4 p.m. and is accessible to concert patrons on event nights. Carissa Sorensen’s exhibit will be featured through the end of June.
