In 2017 I had the privilege of witnessing a total solar eclipse. I will never forget the surprisingly emotional rush that I felt at the moment of totality. This woman, a personification of a total solar eclipse, is my attempt to capture a small fragment of that powerful instance and the wonder that the celestial bodies we get to witness installs in me.

Carly works to bring stories to life through her paintings, specializing in imaginative realism and figurative art. 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 do, whether they are told through paintings, books, games, animation, or photography. This love for narrative has drawn her to illustrating for fantasy and sci-fi novels. She has a chronic thirst to learn, explore, and experiment. Her academic background is a bachelor’s in zoology with a minor in chemistry. When not painting and experimenting in her studio you’ll probably find her in her garden or exploring the nearby mountains with her faithful and constant companion, Strider.
