Hello!  I am a Queens, NY based artist/new mom and come from a long line of crafts people (see photo below of my late, Norwegian grandfather, Anton Sveen, a renowned troll carver).  Named after my great-grandfather, Pulitzer Prize- winning, political cartoonist Carey Orr, I have been creating custom pieces for folks for years, and years, and years, and years.  My work has been featured by Leif Shop, Time Out NY, and Design Sponge, among others.  And, now I want to make something for you!  Check out my shop or contact me for custom requests.

I am  also in the band Iola.

Most sincerely, with affection and glee,

Carey Sveen Watlington
