Carly Jaye is a painter who works primarily in acrylic, creating portraits of friends and family as well as athletes, celebrities, and other pop-culture icons. Beyond human subjects, Carly’s portfolio also features examples of pet portraiture, and landscape and architectural painting.

In our previous feature of Carly’s pop-culture paintings and portraiture, we looked at the artist’s penchant for loving portrayals of everyone from relatives to movie stars. I also really enjoy the way that this sense of personality and reverence translates into works that depict non-human subjects. In Carly’s Miscellaneous gallery on her art portfolio website, the artist demonstrates her eye for buildings and cityscapes.

Carly’s slightly gestural style translates well into these pieces -- the artist’s cityscapes depict her home of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan in realistic dimension with occasional colour and compositional choices that elevate the scenes onto a slightly surreal plane.
