Projects Portfolio

Since 2003, I have illuminated the world of custom visual art and design through my venture, Vivo Fine Art & Design.

My past projects include; Creative Direction, Custom Fine Art, Murals,
Surface Design, Graphic Design, Illustration and Full Scope Interior Design for Residential, Commercial and Public project

As a versatile visual artist, designer, and creative director, I infuse my work with a harmonious blend of unique ideas and innovative solutions. 21 years into my journey, I have developed a diverse spectrum of professional skills, propelled by my steadfast passion for bringing creative visions to life. My unwavering dedication to collaboration shines through as I persistently explore, invent, and meticulously craft experiences that resonate, fostering meaningful connections and inspiration.

Public Spaces


Since I founded my business I have been designing and producing custom murals on small and large scale for interior and exterior applications. I began with residential and commercial murals and quickly moved on to commissions for murals in public spaces.

The following images display a selection of murals that I have created and facilitated for public spaces and events including;

2023 "The Vanishing" Representing local species at risk. see details here

The 2022 & 2023 Chilliwack Mural Festival: community engagement murals (design and facilitation).

Museum of Surrey

Since 2014, I have enjoyed working with the Museum of Surrey providing graphic design and artwork for permanent and temporary exhibit displays, installations, and signage.

The project photos below include wall graphics that I designed and illustrated for a large Guildford Mall exhibit "Urban Fabric: Patterns of Our Lives" celebrating Surrey's multicultural history and local fashion.

Burnaby Village Museum

Since 2007, I have had the great pleasure of working with the talented design team at the Burnaby Village Museum, a beautifully maintained re-creation of a 1920’s era village and carousel.

I regularly prepare permanent and seasonal exhibits, carry out bi-annual restoration painting of the 1929 C.W. Parker carousel horses, collaborate in designing interactive exhibits, and design/fabricate 2&3- D props, décor, murals, permanent signage for buildings, way-finding maps, and vintage advertising.

  • Our firm has incorporated Carly’s work on numerous projects ranging from small to larger scale. Carly is a highly creative, talented artist but what we have found so amazing about working with Carly is how quickly she understands what we need and how quickly she can grasp and then push a concept through her processes to produce the desired results. Always quick to turn around the important samples for review and always doing so with care and a friendliness that makes doing business with her so easy and enjoyable. We intend to continue a long relationship with Carly and look forward to working with her on future artistic works. We highly recommend Carly and her services!

  • Carly is a creative and artistic person whose work is top quality. She works outside of the box when needed and follows direction closely. Carly adds recommendations when needed and is able to create my visions well with a flare for taking projects further then expected. I highly recommend Carly.

    Carly is a very talented artist who brings creativity and a commitment to excellence to her work. I also really appreciate that she is very realistic about her time and the resources required to complete tasks - she gets the job done on time and on budget. She's a very valuable member of our work team.

  • I have worked with Carly both personally and professionally on several projects, some very high profile. I highly recommend her for anything from graphic or interior design to artwork, murals and custom creation. Professional and meticulous, she takes a ton of pride in her work and it shows in the end result.

    Carly is a true professional. She always meets deadlines and delivers as promised or better and is unphased by sudden changes in direction. Best of all, she has a deep talent and brings a personal touch and vision. The projects I've worked on with her have been a delight. I will not hesitate to work with her again should the opportunity arise.
