ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Carly’s art education includes more than 40 years of self guided study and workshops with internationally known artists Ann Templeton, Terry Ludwig, Bob Rohm, Susan Sarback,
Alan Flattman, Ken Elliott, Larry Moore, and others. Whether painting on location or in the studio, originality is a key element in her artwork. Her use of color and texture creates a style
that she terms “visual collage”. Carly imparts a sense of place, a story not completely told, drawing the viewer into the mystery. An award winning artist, her paintings can be found in homes across the country and in
corporate collections including Alltel, Atlanta; Centerville Public Library; the Brand Bank and the Museum of Buford, GA. Carly is well known as a workshop and classroom instructor. Her experience includes founder of the Oil Pastel Society, plein air retreats for artists, workshops and mentoring.
Carly has written articles for WetCanvas.com, Daniel Smith Art Supply, and Caran D’Ache oil pastels. Abstract Color (blog) features thoughts about the creative lifestyle as well as demonstrations of work in progress. Recently Carly moved to Rabun Gap, GA, where she finds inspiration along mountain trails.
