In 2004 she was one of 300 people who were invited to the White House by Laura Busch to see her art work displayed. Representatives from every state were chosen and Carey was chosen from the Society of Decorative Painters in Michigan. She was so impressed with how her art work was beautifully displayed and also impressed with Laura Busch spending hours with all of the representatives, shaking their hands and spending time with them all. Carey was quoted as saying, “It’s one of those things that you think can’t ever happen to you, and it happened to me!” Carey was a decorative painter for over 30 years.
