Self-guided study for more than forty years has given Carly Hardy the freedom to explore beyond the expected. She says, "when you have no expectations, you have no fear."
Carly explores the content of a subject rather than the reality of it. "After painting the obvious, I can explore the subject with creative confidence. Color, texture, line, shapes...all become important to the final outcome but overall I want to allow the viewer to connect to the subject."
Carly's chosen medium is oils or mixed media which she feels is more versatile and appropriate for her newest work. She is the founder and coordinator of the Oil Pastel Society and has published articles at WetCanvas.com, Daniel Smith Art Supply, and Caran d'Ache. Her work has won numerous awards and can be found in private and corporate collections across the country. She teaches workshops and private mentoring sessions.
Now residing in Rabun Gap, GA.
