carly left their corporate job in 2023 to pursue art and making full time.

when not actively painting, she has a thirst for learning new things and obscure facts, collecting shiny things, reading, playing ping pong, and watching the trees sway. carly earned her BFA in Digital Media and Design from the University of Connecticut in 2020. she works from her home studio based in central connecticut.
