Originally a painter with a background in abstracts and mixed media, Carlein was introduced to photography while at art school.
"My word is purely visual. Wherever I am, I look around me and see possible pictures. I let myself lead by mood, colours, light, shape. I work either "pure" so hardly reworked or I work in layers, like I build up my mixed media paintings."
Carlein was born and raised in the Netherlands and has lived in Toronto since 2012.
