Arts In: Carrie Jadus

Carrie Jadus made a name for herself as a professional artist, after giving up a career as a skilled radio frequency engineer.
Her distinctive, soft and subtly subversive style is seen in paintings, on murals, posters and notecards around St. Petersburg. Working at Soft Water Studios, she’s a mainstay of the Warehouse Arts District and longtime illustrator for St. Pete Preservation.
Carrie shares the turning point that made her decide to choose art over engineering – and how as a working mother, she carefully planned a sustainable artistic career, using the business plan of a Toymaker as a model. She explains how working in several different styles helped her earn a living and fulfill her urges for personal expression.
She tells the story behind her well-known mural of pioneering electrical engineer, Nikola Tesla – and Little Miss Sisyphus, the mural people often miss just around the corner. Carrie shares her passion for ‘grand portraits,’ monumental paintings of figures from Einstein to Nina Simone, and explains in detail two recent, more surrealistic, paintings.
