Artist's Statement

I am a painter/mixed-media collage artist. I am inspired by the colors and textures of nature, “primitive” and “folk” arts, and the interaction between natural and man-made surfaces. Through texture, abstract form, and image, I explore and allude to the fundamental elements and mysteries of nature and existence: impermanence, decay, regeneration, birth, growth, history, archeology and spirituality. Some collage materials come from nature, like branches, leaves, and sand; while others - household items like packaging twine or crepe paper.


Carla graduated from F.I.T., NYC, with a BFA in Restoration and Fine Arts, and is currently completing a Color Specialist certificate program. She has been featured in numerous solo/group exhibitions in NYC and along the East Coast. She has been mentioned in The New York Times, The New York Daily News, BBC World News, and more. She also works as a professional decorative interior surface designer, faux finisher, and scenic/display artist.
