Original Artwork Client Testimonials


When I first saw Birth it struck me as unique and something special.  I had seen nothing like it.  Then Carleen shared her personal story behind Birth and I loved it even more.  Birth is the story of the two little ones that Carleen's family dug out of the sand and the celebration as the two new souls made tracks to the water.  The birth experience is brought to life for us with Carleen's brush.  


Birth graces a wall in our home.  It continues to bring me tranquility, peace, and hope -- and is much loved.         


Honu by Carleen Ross

We bought “Honu’ about 6 years ago for our new home and it is as relevant to us now as it was then.  Our past travels have often included the ocean and snorkelling, where our biggest thrill was sea creatures, including sea turtles.  “Honu' is a happy reminder of those times.  Every time I look at him, I smile - both inside and out!

Sea Turtle by Carleen Ross
Sea Turtle II

A few years back, my wife and I were having coffee in a Second Cup.  I noticed  beautiful turtle art on the wall.  I thought, “What a great photograph!  I went to take a closer look and realized that it was not a photograph but rather an original art painting.  The realism was incredible.  I knew I had to have it when I saw that the art  in Second Cup was for sale.  We contacted Carleen and bought it.  We gave it to my daughter who was living in Mexico at that time and is an avid SCUBA diver and lover of all things oceanic.  The painting now graces her home.  I love seeing it every time we visit!
