Carly Weaver was born in California, but grew up in Virginia, where she attended the James Madison University and majored in painting. Upon graduation she moved to Boston, where she worked for Ritz Camera and continued to paint. She showed in restaurants and put on group shows for others, but the turning point was when two of her paintings were bought by an influential interior designer and hung in the designer’s shop on Copley Square, an affluent area in Boston. Life was good but like most Austin transplants, she wanted to afford a home, so moved here three years ago. On-line she took a Texas Tech course on, “Orientation Mobility,” and got a job with The Blind Rehabilitation Center. She is also a gifted remodeler and is working on transforming her home single handedly.
