Carlie Pearce says that art changed her life, and now she’s changing art by adding a dose of sweetness to it.
If your day is not so great, one look at Carlie’s art will put a smile on your face. Especially if you love donuts — they are everywhere in her work. Carlie lives in Hamilton, Ontario (trivia: her art is displayed in the mayor’s office!) and thinks of art as medicine and freedom.
“I’ve wanted to be an artist since I can remember,” Carlie says. “My first commission was when I was around 15 years old—it was a drawing of a dog. When I dropped it off at the person’s house, she said, “Make sure you sign the back so I have that when you’re famous”—I’ll always remember that.”
