From the Bayou to Berkeley

Carrie Salazar is a freelance digital and traditional illustrator. Although mostly specialized in Children’s Illustration, Carrie enjoys working in a variety of styles. Her work features diverse characters with a range of ages and backgrounds.

She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her work has been featured in young adult and children’s books.

Carrie, the daughter of immigrants, grew up in a small community in southeastern Louisiana. She now lives in California with her family and many pets.


I get inspiration from dreams, history, people, events, and my mischievous childhood in the rural south. I'm driven to tell my own story, or other people's stories, through illustrations.
