Like most people, Carly went to university straight after school. During high school she thought maybe dentistry was a useful, practical career choice but didn't find much passion for teeth in the end. She ended up in a Chemistry program, but it didn't feel quite right either, even though molecules were pretty interesting. After graduation, she spent some time working in an agricultural lab but a few months later enrolled to study makeup in New York. A little bit scary but a whole lot of fun, it was the best decision she had ever made. Right now she is a makeup artist, based in London.  Her friends joke that she's a 'failed Asian'. Carly thinks that there isn't a better type of Asian to be, really. 

Carly is obsessed with compelling fashion imagery, however is also interested in branching into the art world where possible. She also finds great joy in doing make up for special events, music videos, film and commercials.
