Sight Seeing

Carolyn Gavin brings the landmarks of cities scattered across the globe to life in her eye-catching prints that are chock-full of local color. Inspired by her world travels, the South African-born artist captures the buzz of each city and represents its most-visited sights, monuments, and more as charming abstractions. She works in dense layers of gouache and watercolor to create her inspired homages to some of the planet's most vibrant urban areas. Follow the winding curves of Lombard Street in San Francisco, take in the impressive view along La Seine in gay Paris, or get lost in the hubbub of the Big Apple. Conjure memories of your own travels, or display your old stomping grounds in a place of honor in your new home. Designed in Toronto, Canada. Printed in Portland, Oregon.

“Living life with so many freedoms at my fingertips is a victory in unto itself.”

Exotic color, travel, and nature inspire Carolyn Gavin's work, and for good reason. She grew up in South Africa, traveled through Europe, and landed in Canada where she lives in a 120-year-old Victorian house in downtown Toronto with her husband, daughter Lily, and English Bulldogs, Eggroll. Carolyn trained as a graphic designer in South Africa (the "old-fashioned way," she notes) and now runs the creative side of a family-run stationery business founded with her brother, Mark. She works in gouache, watercolor, and vector to reflect the vibrant beauty she sees in the world. When not drawing or painting, Carolyn reads, rides her bike, does yoga, and gardens to relax. She’s inspired by the buzz of the city as well as the serenity of the country.
