My name is Carly Gordon, and I am a Canadian painter with a studio in Edmonton, a penchant for travel, and a need to paint my adventures to learn more about myself. I create landscape and abstract paintings that depict places I've been, feelings I've felt, and experiences I've shared with myself and others.

With my work I hope to achieve a greater sense of self, and my intention is that when people see my work they too, are moved to explore the beautiful country of Canada, and the depths of their soul.

I have been painting and selling work for the last decade - in that time I graduated from OCADU with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drawing & Painting too. I have lived and loved all across the country, and I let that flow through in my work.

When I'm not in the studio...

You can find me engrossed with meditation practice, spirituality, and expanding my higher consciousness.

I sit on the board for the Leduc Arts Foundry, working to facilitate all varieties of art practice within my hometown.

And I play rugby with the best group of women in the whole wide world. Want 30 instant best friends? Join a rugby team.

I spend my down time cycling, running, hiking, going for picnics with my partner Grace, trying new beers with friends, and watching The Office on repeat forever.
