Keira McCarrell, D-1 Student Athlete, Olympics, Pottery and Watercolor Artist

Keira McCarrell is one busy girl. A redshirt senior at Auburn University, is staying occupied in 2021 with school, track and field and her love of creating works of art. Rick talks to Keira about combining being in school, running track and selling her beautiful artwork, which this holiday season included Christmas cards. “I was born in British Columbia, Canada, and compete on their national team when presented the opportunity. I was raised in Oregon and transferred from University of Oregon to now Auburn. As a multi athlete, I have always found myself trying new things and doing everything I can to keep myself busy.” Her artist journey started in high school when she started being very passionate about pottery. “As I lost my access to a studio I picked up watercolor. My mom suggested I started selling them online and I’ve been doing it ever since. It’s what keeps my mind at ease when I’m constantly thinking about sports and school during the week! See how Keira does it all and has a shot at the Olympics. Have a listen. Keira’s links to check out: Instagram @handpainted.by.keira @keira_mcc Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/therunningbrush
