Carly is a Freelance Textile Designer and Graphic Artist from sunny Los Angeles. Her areas of expertise include textile prints and graphics, fine art illustration, and creative direction consulting.
She has worked on art and design commissions for 10+ years—including original print artwork, apparel graphics, embellishment design, color/mood/trend concepts, and product design. She regularly researches upcoming design trends, cultural innovations, and vintage inspiration to inform her work. She loves collaborating on impactful projects that merge evocative fine art media with precise technical execution, approaching the needs of each unique client project with fresh inspiration.
Carly has worked with top clients in the fashion and interior design industries including McGee & Co., Current/Elliott, Equipment, Joie, Jen’s Pirate Booty, and Bingin. In her off-time she tends to work in her sketchbook, take in the sunset, snack with friends, rollerskate, and dig through old music and movie archives.
