Carly Garza

Carly Garza is a visual artist and musician from San Antonio whose work investigates feminism, self-image, and personal habits and patterns. She works in many media, with a focus on drawing and fiber art. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA.

In 2015, she was chosen for the Dimensions Summer Artist Residency, in which several artists from her class at Cornish transformed empty apartment units into art galleries to install and show their work. In 2016, she created her most ambitious work to date for her BFA exhibition: six life-sized self-portrait embroideries, focused on her sleeping patterns and insomnia. In 2018, she had a solo show of figure drawings at Creative Creatures Gallery in the Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio. In 2019 she participated in a group show of fiber work at Clamplight Gallery, in which she showed three more embroidered pieces. In 2020 she showed an abstract ink series at the Citrine Home showroom, a space run by a local interior designer.

When not working on art, Carly likes to roller skate and listen to true crime podcasts.
