My name is Carly and I am the artist behind Carly Rae Studio. I live in Kansas City and create detailed, whimsical artwork that allows people to express themselves and what they love.
Carly Rae Studio started in 2013, when I was in college working towards a degree in art education. After a year of teaching, I decided to make art a full-time career.
My artwork is detailed and whimsical, often make up of tiny flowers. I am inspired by color, patterns, Kansas City, sports, and nature: flowers, the ocean, the forest, the sky, animals, sunshine, palm trees and seashells. Each floral painting starts with a pencil outline of a shape and is slowly filled in with tiny watercolor flowers.
My paintings are then printed on textured fine art paper. They make thoughtful and personal gifts, as well as unique decor for homes, nurseries, special events, offices and more. My artwork has been sold in stores around the US, such as Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s and many local Kansas City boutiques. My newest designs are available in my shop.
