General Reviews

"Karly Michelle is a lovely talented artist.  Her artwork is a combination of the old and new and often with a hint of romance. Karly inspires creativity and growth in her student’s. Working with Karly allowed me to express my relationship with God in a new yet more meaningful way then ever before. I am looking forward to organizing time away from the family to enjoy Karly’s retreats allowing my self the space to enjoy craft and also enhancing my relationship with God." Lisa

"Karly's work has many facets to it, gathering inspiration from many sources - drama, teaching, music, faith and illness. Her collages are a mix of  the complexities of  life. We all grapple with the fragments of our lives and try to make sense of its complexity. Karly's work encourages us to connect with these dichotomies." Karen
