As a weaver, singer, teacher, and community spirit, Carly puts the New England ethic of hard work, do it yourself craft-womanship and innovation into all she does. She began her life of art when still a teen, traveling to Bulgaria to sing with Village Harmony. Her love of music continues on, given voice through her involvement in the Baltimore area’s Sacred Harp community and her founding of the a capella group, The Shapenote Sisters. Her dedication to the hard worked and hand made shows as well in her textile work–her scarves, wrist cuffs, and fine art woven laboriously and with artistry on one of her several looms. She has developed a successful practice of marketing these goods and has been featured in this capacity in such magazines as Fiber Art, Baltimore City Paper, and B. Carly’s love of community shines through in her work as President of the Charm City Craft Mafia as well as the many workshops she teaches in her home studio. Whether it’s instruction in the art of weaving, the making of natural dyes, or the home-fashioning of hula-hoops, Carly can tell you how.
