Carrie Trax is a native of Pennsylvania and immigrated to Oregon in 2005. Carrie’s passion for food has been with her as long as she can remember. After moving to Oregon she continued her interest in food but while traveling through the Pacific Northwest she became interested both in the food and in capturing that food photographically.
Her interest in food led her to start her own food blog in 2010 where she used her photographic skills to turn mere recipes into works of art on the screen. Now her work has found itself into galleries here in Oregon and she is delighted that others are able to share her food passion through her art. “Nothing makes me happier than cooking and feeding people”, she says, “but having someone like my food artwork is a very close second.”
I’ve always loved cooking and teaching people to cook and with my food blog I can do that daily. Learning photography to supply the images for the blog was the start of my art career and I’m enjoying both cooking and photographing my recipes. I include old family recipes as well as new dishes I’ve learned here in the Pacific Northwest and I try to take my heirloom recipes and change them with tricks and secrets I’ve learned here in Oregon and to use the amazing fresh bounty available here.
