Currently, button tree is a one person organization created and managed by artist Carrie Rice. Although the idea behind button tree formed in the summer of 2008 with the creation of a series of button trees depicting the changing seasons for some much needed wall art in her home, this small business was not launched until 2009 when a local craft fair prompted her to go public with her unique button artworks.
Carrie grew up in the Adirondack Park of northern New York. After living in Ohio and Pennsylvania for several years, she has returned to NY. She presently works out of her country home in a rural area near Cooperstown.
Since childhood she has had an interest in design and art. Her undergraduate studies included a minor in studio arts, although neither her BA nor MA is in fine arts. Over the past decade she has worked in multiple creative fields including photography and architecture, which has fueled her desire to pursue a career doing what she truly enjoys... crafting unique and one of a kind artworks.
Where can I purchase button tree products?
At this time, purchases can be made through Etsy and at local craft fairs.
I like an artwork you already sold. Can you make another one for me?
Because these artworks are often created using recycled and one of a kind materials and frames, it truly is impossible to duplicate them. In addition, each artwork really takes on a life of its' own as it is created. However, I can sometimes make similar items using like colors, fabrics, sizes, etc. Contact me if this is something you are interested in, and we can see if I can create what you want.
Do you take special orders or do artwork on commission?
Yes, I do commissioned artworks and I can incorporate your own materials, such as leftover fabric from window treatments or buttons from your mother's button collection. Contact me if this is something you are interested in, and we can see if I can create what you want. A deposit would be required if you commission a custom artwork.
