Candy Carver is a North Carolina native that spent her formative years in Elkhart, IN, where she developed her abstract creativity. Working primarily with acrylic and various surfaces from canvas to vinyl, she creates vibrant, textured pieces that touch the soul and excite viewers. Her work can be found throughout the southeastern states and continues to gain recognition. Carver contributes much of her inspiration to own love for excitement, color and beauty found in the human form.
