In 2005 she travelled to Vienne, Austria, as a foreign exchange student in the Akademie der bildenden Kunste, Wien. Carny finished her BFA studies in 2006, receiving an excellence award from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.
In the following years Carny participated in many group exhibitions and a solo exhibition in ‘Darom’- an independent art space in Tel- Aviv.
In the year 2009, Carny began her Master of Fine Arts studies in Bezalel, which she finished with highest honors in 2011. In the following years she continued to participate in group shows in various galleries and different art spaces, and had a solo exhibition at the Ramat Gan Museum of Israeli Art in 2014.
In 2013 she spent three months at the Cite International Des Arts, Paris. Starting 2014 and until now, she’s been working at ‘Gabirol’- an artists complex in Tel- Aviv, where she also initiated and curated a large scale group exhibition of installations by twelve artists at the ‘Gabirol’ gallery space. Carny is an art teacher and a lecturer in institutions including the Bezalel religious extension in Jerusalem, and Arison School of the arts in Tel- Aviv.
