Carly Drew's work juxtaposes her art and her trade as a draftswoman. In some pieces, dilapidated barns are overlaid with architectural guidelines to demonstrate what could be or what once was. In others, lush watercolor grasses evaporate into diagrams indicating contested land and resources. But all of her pieces communicate the deep love Carly has for this part of the world. That skill allows her art to spark that love in others. Carly Drew received her MFA at Clemson University in South Carolina. Her art has been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions, frequently winning Best In Show. Her days are split between exploring the landscapes and environments that inspire her and expressing those ideas in the studio.
