Carly works to bring stories to life through illustration, specializing in figurative art for young adult and adult book covers in the fantasy and science fiction genres. She also takes private commissions and sells her original paintings. Growing up she was always a creative type and wanted to be everyone and everything, which explains why she’s always been drawn to stories. Nothing lets us explore other lives quite the way narratives told through books, games, and movies do. Even now she has a chronic thirst to learn, explore, and experiment. When not painting and experimenting in her studio she’ll probably be in her garden or exploring the nearby mountains with her faithful and constant companion, Strider.
