La Fortuna Waterfall Costa Rica wedding bride and groom couple  
- Oh my goodness where to begin?!  Carlin is amazing, super responsive and accommodating. She customized this beautiful painting for our brother and sister in law who eloped at 
La Fortuna waterfall this summer.  It is perfect down to her hair and dress, even his suspenders! Every tiny detail was captured and we could not have been happier with our purchase.  A million thank you's to Carlin!  It is the most perfect painting!

Commission

- Dear Carlin, Thanks so much for creating the original watercolor of Elberta Peaches and the Cedar Waxwing Bird for our daughter, Amy, to present to us as we embark on a new phase in our lives.  It means so much to us to have a remembrance of the home we are leaving and the new home to which we are moving.  The colors in the painting are so true to life and delightful.  Thanks again.

Watercolor painting of Toddler in play pool and black fluffy dog
- "Carlin did a piece of art that means so much to me and my family.
She captured a moment of my two year old son and dearest dog.  She captured the beauty and innocence by using soft colors and realistic background imagines.  This will be a piece of art that will not only be enjoyed by my family but generations to come.  Carlin also was extremely efficient with mailing the piece to me  and tracking its "route."  Her updates letting me know where it is and when it will be delivered was very comforting.  Carlin shipped her artwork in high-quality packaging to assure it's safety. I have appreciated her attention to detail in both the painting and service she provided.  I can't wait to see her next painting."

Watercolor painting of ocean wave, rocks, sunset, blue
- "I can't say enough about Carlin's paintings!  I found the website and began browsing for unique tropical scenes.  I was very impressed by the tremendous selection and colors.  It was difficult to make a decision, so I chose 4!  The pieces have not only brightened my home, but brought a sense of serenity to it.  I couldn't be happier with this work and will continue to refer others to her website as I know they will be just as happy."

- "I am the proud owner of two of Carlin's paintings and I love them both!  I am delighted to have one hanging in my bedroom and one in my kitchen area, where I can enjoy them every time I walk past.  I really like her style but I think it's her use of colors that draws me in.  Carlin was easy to deal with and my paintings came quickly and very well packaged, just as she described.  I will definitely be following her and would buy more art from her in the future."

                                                                                                                   - Maureen Andreson - San Jose, CA





- "Carlin is a delight to deal with and her art speaks for itself.  I ordered more than one piece and they arrived by mail quickly.  I would definitely recommend her to friends and family looking for original art being sold by a reputable person!"

           - Jeannette Reiff - California


- "Carlin's style will draw you in and keep you intrigued and interested and delighted. Shadows bring her buildings to life, clouds give her skies a soul. Somehow, magically, she pulls together the perfect color palette with her subject matter and finds that balance of detail and white space that allows your imagination to connect with each painting.  I own two of Carlin's paintings and many times I will find myself staring at them, not wanting to look away."

- "I love all your artwork.  I have three hanging in my house proudly.  You have an amazing talent and I love the colors and stories behind every one.  You are a true artist and I enjoy looking at your collections.

- "Carlin I absolutely LOVE this painting! It's hanging perfectly in my bedroom and every time I look at it brings me to the happy times spent at the beach! Thank you so much!"

- "I own 3 watercolor paintings that Carlin did.  I get many compliments on them and they are displayed in different areas of my home.  I follow Carlin, and I'm constantly watching for new ideas.  They are wonderful expression of color and subject.  I am considering another one from her shell collection."
