Here is a little bit about me and my beginning.
I am always striving to achieve something new - not because I have to be the best, I know there will always be someone better, but because I can and I love it. What I create, no matter the medium, is not just something to look at, but rather, something to see, feel, and experience. I see beauty in the mundane and greatness in simplicity. I aim to bring together human experiences and feelings as well as nature and spirituality to create art.
I was given a chance at Stillwater Screenprinting and Embroidery as a Graphic Designer, even though I had no degree. I began designing t-shirts and realised what an oportunity there was to be had in doing that. Years passed and I still hadn't pursued that thought any farther and then myself and Kristen (another artist at SSPE), owner of Orange Armadillo Apparel Company, decided we wanted to sell shirts during the home OSU football games and I officially made Carlie J Design real and we began this journey, with our new businesses, together! (I had an etsy account under that title and did photography, film, drawings and paintings under the title but it wasn't official and I definitely never shared or promoted my work). September 2016 is when Carlie J Design become real. I sold shirts during OSU football games behind The Garage and set up on Zeta's lawn for OSU Walkaround (Homecoming)! After that I did a couple of trade shows/craft shows and slowly have been doing more. Now I have this blog, an Etsy shop, a YouTube channel, amateur photography and videography all operating under Carlie J Design and I cannot wait to see where this all goes!
Carlie London (& husband Brady)
Owner | Graphic Designer | Wild Flower | Photographer | Videographer | Dreamer | Wife | Adventurer | Nerd | INFP
Carlie does her best to see beauty in everything, even the mundane.
Harmonious. Humanitarian. Hippie.
Carlie was born in Oklahoma City and grew up in Stillwater, OK and has attended several Universities (Northern Oklahoma College, College of the Ozarks, and University of Surrey) but hasn't managed to get the graduating thing down yet. She does have a certificate in Digital Media Arts and another in Floral Design. Carlie has a passion for traveling and seeing as much of the world as possible - glimpsing history, experiencing cultures, exploring the world, and meeting people. Carlie has a heart for making sure all the orphans of the world are loved and saving the earth (hence getting married on Earth Day).
Designer. Dreamer. Dancer.
Carlie enjoys designing fun tees, traveling the world, reading good books, hiking new and old trails, swimming with mermaids, camping as often as possible, dreaming with unicorns, floating in the clouds, and reliving her dance-life past time whenever the chance arises.
Always Remember: you are of infinite worth.
There is at least an 80% chance that Carlie knows more about Harry Potter than you.
Brady and I are a couple of travel-loving, adventure-seeking, nerds navigating being newlyweds, life, a house remodel, travel, and everything else! If you want to keep up with us then head on over to happygolondons.com and join us on our journey!
