Carly is a specialist and auctioneer, with a particular interest in Prints & Multiples, as well as Scottish and Contemporary paintings. She joined the Paintings Department at Lyon & Turnbull in 2014 and since then has worked across the department, cataloguing artworks but also writing and researching for catalogue essays, giving talks and developing event ideas to accompany our auction and exhibition programme.

From August 2019 to August 2020, Carly acted up as Head of Contemporary & Post-War Art, covering a maternity leave. She now divides her time between working within the Modern & Contemporary department and developing the Prints & Multiples department.

Before discovering the buzz of the auction world, Carly studied History of Art and English Literature at the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 2012. Always passionate about visual arts, Carly spent fifteen months in the Education team at the National Galleries of Scotland, working on the talks and events programme for adults. She has also worked in various Edinburgh-based contemporary arts organisations, including Collective and Inverleith House.
