About the Artist

Carrie M. Jadus was born in Tampa, Florida in 1976 and raised in the burgeoning city of Saint Petersburg. Encouraged by an ancestry of artists and a supportive family, Jadus acknowledged her aspiration at an early age. She has since thrived as an artist and has completely dedicated herself to her skills. Jadus is a Tampa Bay Artist and her work is exhibited in galleries and a part of private collections all over the world.







Artist's Statement

“Art is a Story Unique to each of its Viewers”

I recall that from the time I was very young, the works that most impressed me were those that contained not only beautiful images or themes, but also a story. I have come to believe that it is not just beauty we seek in art, but the medium through which our minds can create a fascinating tale. I hope my artwork can be a spark that ignites the imagination and creates a place for the viewer to get lost in their own story.
