Carlie is a (mostly) self-taught artist from Houston, Texas. For many years, her art took the form of writing poetry and prose and dabbling in oil painting. She now primarily works with watercolors. There is a certain unpredictable, predictability in painting, the juxtaposition between planning and giving the piece the freedom to go where it may. This is especially true for the fluidity of watercolor.

Carlie also professionally works in the nonprofit sector for an organization that provides healthcare services for homeless men, women and children, and holds a Master's degree in Public Health.
