Welcome to Clementine Studio!
I'm Carly, an artist and illustrator working in watercolor from my studio in Chicago. I founded Clementine Studio in 2014 with a focus on custom wedding stationery and specialized illustration for brands and events. My work is inspired by unexpected color combinations, magical realism, and finding little moments of humor and delight in ordinary situations.
I grew up in my mom's art studio in New York, getting an unofficial education in painting and drawing, then more officially by getting my BA at the School of Art at the University of Denver where I graduated with honors, and more professionally when I moved back to New York to earn my Masters in Contemporary Art Business from Sotheby's Institute.
I've illustrated for clients including Architectural Digest, Maybelline, Birchbox, The Art Institute of Chicago, Rebecca Minkoff, Lebron James, Refinery 29, amongst others and have designed one-of-a-kind stationery for weddings all over the world.
