About Philip Carey

The artwork of California artist Philip Carey can best be described as being colorful, wacky, and full of fun. His art consists of sketches and stories about his bizarre dreams that are drawn with ink and Prismacolor pencils on 3x5 Post-It notes. The drawings are framed and have been published in four volumes of dream drawing books. He also creates postal art during his three-times-a-week kidney dialysis treatments. These are drawn on #10 envelopes and depicts the adventures of "mini-Philip," phobias, scenes from dialysis, landscapes, travel, and colorful designs. Recently he has been creating "bandage faces," which are actual byproducts of his dialysis treatments.

Carey received a B.A. in Exhibit Design from California State University at Long Beach. His 35-year career included being Exhibit Designer/Installer at the California Museum of Science and Industry in Los Angeles; Director of Education and Curator of Exhibits at the Roberson Center for the Arts and Sciences in Binghamton, New York; and Exhibit Designer/Coordinator for the California State Parks Department in Sacramento, California.

In June 2013, he won first place in the 10x10 show, "Lost But Not Forgotten," at the Bakersfield Museum of Art, where two of his three-dimensional dream drawings were accepted.
