Carly Kuhn, (formerly known as The Cartorialist), is a Miami-based artist & designer who has collaborated with an array of esteemed brands and companies including Prada, Dior, Capitol Records, Oscar De La Renta and The American Ballet Theatre. Born and raised in New York City, Carly graduated with a degree in Television, Radio, and Film from the Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. She lived in Los Angeles for 12 years, working at CAA, and then in production and development in TV comedy. She also studied improv at the famed Groundlings theater, before she found her way into an unexpected career as an artist. A serious artist who doesn’t take herself too seriously, Carly’s work ranges from portraits and fashion illustrations to large-scale murals, restaurant menu designs, and logos. She is inspired by people and their quotidienne quirks & anxieties, pop culture (both old and new), antiques, slice-of-life stories, and the weird things she observes by being a New Yorker at heart who walks in any city. She lives in Miami with her husband, Danny, new baby, Oliver Leo and their dog Lucca. Today, Carly is expanding her work to live beyond the screen and page and onto walls and more with the launch of her own design studio, The Cartelier.
Carly is currently working on new exhibitions and interior design projects in the United States and Europe.
