Carla grew up in Ohio in a family of
creative individuals. Her own artistic skills
were apparent at a very early age and
blossomed more as she grew. By age 11,
she was showing her art in local art fairs
and events accumulating best of show
awards throughout Ohio and Indiana.
She attended Anderson University where
she grew her talent and knowledge of art
with a major in Art Education. It is here that
she became inspired by the brush work of
Eastern cultures, developing a
quality that is still apparent in her work.
After receiving her Master’s degree in
painting from Miami University (Ohio) Carla
taught art before becoming an artist full-
time in the late 70s.
" I chose the Berkshire area as my residence,
to develop my style.
The natural beauty of the terrain inspires
me — from the mountains and rolling
hills to the streams, waterfalls, and
birch groves. Over the years, my gardens
have become an additional source of
inspiration for my luminous painting style
I continue to enjoy teaching adult painting
workshops, and meeting artists with different
perspectives and talents.
Working back and forth between 2 dimensional
painting, and the 3 dimensional ceramic art
enriches my artistic development,
and challenges my perspecitves."
