Carly Jo grew up in Wisconsin with three brothers, a cowboy dad, and an artist mother. She graduated college in Pre-Med, but secretly saw her entire biology career in art: the lines of equations and shapes in anatomy illustrations were moving to her. After college, Carly moved to the mountains where she mentored with artists + photographers, taught adaptive ski/snowboard lessons, and eventually spent winters running the local Special Needs ski program (Small Champions). It gave her life. Those kids make her laugh, cry, and create color in her head. They single-handedly inspired her to become an artist - something she thought was never possible. The athletes and families taught Carly that through hard work and heart, anything is possible. She was magnetized back to the drafting table; would ski instruct all day and draw all night, slowly selling small pieces and photographing her first ski events (Burton US Open, Go Pro Games). She moved to Minneapolis to mentor with Taylor Tupy, a fashion photographer now in NYC. Photography has fortunately taken her worldwide and she is grateful to specialize in destination weddings. Carly has never been able to choose just one medium; they all push and inspire the next piece. Currently, Carly's painting and woodburning studio is based in Big Sky, MT (winters) – where she teaches skiing at the Yellowstone Club - and Bruce, WI (summers) and she is honored with every opportunity to photograph, create, and work with Special Olympics skiing. She now donates about one piece a month to a family, hospital, or organization in need. Everyone needs some color in their life! She hopes to evoke a sort of full-hearted happiness through art.
