ArtByCarly - Carly Kewley
Growing up I remember wanting to be an artist or at least creating things. I loved to day dream, create, draw, paint... I loved the world of creation and imagination. I didn't really have a vision of being self employed until after college and after a couple of jobs that were disheartening and discouraging, to say the least. However, they taught me a lot of what I know now, as well as what not to do in the future and the type of environment I want to work in whether it's for myself or for someone else. Today I have the pleasure of combining all of my passions: art, design and photography. I get to help businesses start their brand as well as help businesses grow their brand. I'm able to photograph milestones for families to look back on. I have the opportunity to create my own art and the opportunity to create art for individuals, families or businesses. I like to call myself the one-stop creative shop. I worked hard for this opportunity to show, to be self employed and to be able to work from home. I love being able to do what I do and being able to share it with others. Seeing the joy on a business owners face as they see their own dreams coming to life and seeing excitement that my customers have when they see their pictures after our sessions, it's irreplaceable. Just like in any job, some days are tougher than others. There's always ups and downs, but I truly am happy with where I'm at now and owning ArtByCarly.
