Welcome to Clementine Studio!
I'm Carly Martin, 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 the idea of play: color, patterns, magical realism, little moments of humor and delight.
I grew up playing with paint in my mom's art studio in New York, getting an unofficial education in painting and drawing, then more officially by earning my
BA at the School of Art at the University of Denver and my Masters in Contemporary Art Business from Sotheby's Institute in New York.
A few clients I've had the pleasure of working with include Architectural Digest,
Maybelline, Birchbox, The Art Institute of Chicago, and Rebecca Minkoff
and I've designed one-of-a-kind wedding stationery for couples all over the world.
In the spring of 2020 I created free "save-the-new-dates" for 120 couples whose weddings were impacted by the pandemic. It meant so much to be able to help in a small way, and I wanted to extend that concept to my business on an ongoing basis. Six months later I officially launched my sister-site: Clementine To Go.
C2G is a self-serve way to get my signature art-forward designs
at a more accessible price point.
