Carly Van Eck

Grandville, MI, United States

I'm Carly Van Eck, and I create vibrant, colorful, abstract acrylic paintings. I've always enjoyed being creative and artistic, and and I was known for doodling in my notebook during class. When I finished grad school, I entered the social work field, working in mental health. Meanwhile, I was creating many different types of crafts and people were offering to buy them from me. Following a long series of chronic health issues, I found that working a traditional job was not something I could do. I began to expand my art and crafting and decided to make it a business. At that time, I did everything from refinishing furniture and creating holiday decor, to painting signs and making watercolor cards. I have since begun to focus on acrylic abstract painting in happy colors. Color brings me joy and I hope it does for others as well!
