Born in Lincoln Nebraska, and an inhabiter of many states afterwards, Carly now lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She received her Associates Degree from Burlington County Community College, and her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Between those two adventures, she also spent 6 weeks studying abroad at Paris American Academy in Paris, France. 

Carly works with multiple materials but has recently been working exclusively with yarn and fabrics. She refers to her work as "textile paintings", using scale, detail, and image to translate ideas of anxiety and restlessness in relation to the body.
