About the Instructor:
Candy Carver is a North Carolina native who spent her formative years in Indiana, where she developed her abstract creativity. Her artwork is inspired by her personal journey to experience and share positive and encouraging emotions. She attributes much of her inspiration to her own love for excitement, color and beauty found in the human form.
Carver’s paintings are often filled with movement, sensual, brightly colored, heavily patterned images. They tell stories of those she interacts with as well as lessons learned within her own life. Her goal is for the viewer to be engulfed by the tangibility of strength, power, boldness and resilience of her art. She wants the viewer to leave feeling “full” of whatever they lack. Candy’s work is for those who need to feel energized and emboldened to press forward. Her work is for everyone!
