About M Carlen
Welcome to Originals by M Carlen! This site is dedicated to my best works ~ peruse my galleries or purchase high-quality archival prints, greeting cards and other products of your choice.
A Southern California native, I was born and raised in Pasadena, Calif. I developed my passion for art from my paternal Grandmother. As a child and throughout my teen years, I would travel to Whidbey Island, Washington to visit her and my Grandfather. Grandma was a professional watercolorist on the island for many years.
It was through these years that I learned watercolor from her. The memories of us painting together in her studio are truly priceless. While Iâ€™ve developed other mediums through classes and instruction, she gave me the tools and guidance that have enabled me to be where I am today.
I've continued in my adulthood to purse my practice of painting as watercolors and acrylics. I find capturing nature to be fun and enjoyable with watercolors. Acrylics speak to the imaginative side of me and I share this through abstracts. My commissioned pieces are always something I take pride in completing as it gives the owner of the work a sense of connection to something greater.
I'm an active member of the Buenaventura Art Association, Carpinteria Arts Center, and the San Dieguito Art Guild. You can find my work on exhibit and for sale in shops along the California Coast from San Diego to Pismo Beach. I'm available for commissioned works especially for travel location settings and pet portraiture.
It is my hope you find a piece here that really speaks to your soul. Whether interested in purchasing the original or reproduction on various types of medium of your selection, I hope my art brings you joy for many years to come!
