Welcome to Originals by M Carlen! This site is dedicated to my best works ~ peruse my galleries or purchase high-quality archival prints and greeting cards of your choice.

A Southern California native, I was born and raised in Pasadena, Calif. I developed my passion for art from my grandmother on my paternal side of the family. As a child I would travel to Whidbey Island, Washington to visit my grandmother who was a professional watercolorist on the Island for many years. It was in my childhood years that my grandmother taught me everything I know about the medium. While developing other mediums through classes and instruction, she truly gave me the tools and guidance that have enabled me to be where I am today.

Watercolors speak to my natural abilities to imitate what I see. What inspires me is unique landscapes and scenery. Animals, still lifes and interesting buildings/architecture have also been a recent focus for me. A dramatic backdrop or sunset still remains the greatest motivation for me to put paint on paper.

My work is exhibited in various shops and stores on the California coastline. I am a member of the San Dieguto Art Guild.
