Carle the Bear by Christie Hicks
2018 Cairo Bear #15
Sponsored by: Great Beginnings Daycare
Description: Inspired by the artwork of the sponsor’s favorite children’s book author, Eric Carle.
About the Artist: Christie Hicks moved to the Hudson Valley in late 2014 when her husband Kevin retired from the army to enjoy the tranquility of the area and the beauty of the mountains. She studied graphic design and fine arts at Columbia-Greene Community College in Hudson. The creative outlet these classes provided inspired her to submit a design for Cat’n Around Catskill for the past 3 years and to spearhead bringing back Cairo Bears with the Cairo Development Foundation.
