Freelance Illustrator and Fine Art Artist
I'm Carlie Hamilton and I live in Des Moines, Iowa.
During my long art career I have created serigraph prints and watercolor paintings of botanicals, landscapes, and gardens. I also work in pen and pencil.
For over seventeen years I was the staff illustrator for Garden Gate Magazine. My specialties include flowers, vegetables, botanicals, gardens, and landscapes with an occasional insect thrown in. I can work in a variety of styles from quick, whimsical sketches to more detailed realism.
Clients have included corporations as well as private individuals. Creating beautiful works of art for people to enjoy is something I love to do!
