Visual Arts

Painting, Drawing

My name is Carly and I’m a Canadian artist who paints vibrant and etherial nature-scapes using a mixture of media.

Feeling oneness with the spirit of nature, inhaling lush pine and mossy forests and watching the dance of waves and ripples of water that flow across the rocky earth. Wandering in awe through ever-changing landscapes and hearing the voices of earth’s many creatures, calling out to one another is what inspires me to create.

I began painting as a small child and have never stopped. My traditional studies in graphic design (UCFV 2003) and natural abilities as an artist have propelled me into a rewarding journey exploring many visual languages. My many professional projects include digital illustrations/graphics, residential interior design contracts and 2/3-D custom designed and fabricated works of art for private and public display.

I work from my garden studio at my home surround by peaceful mountains and creeks in Chilliwack, B.C. where the wild life is constantly dancing and flowing all around us. I also love to sketch and take many photos that help to inspire my art while I’m out on hiking adventures with my amazing partner Todd.
