Carla’s work is an exploration of storytelling through a still life setup. The themes often contain vintage items because they evoke nostalgia. Carla feels these pieces are witness to many and repeated occurrences, whether interesting, mundane, sad, happy or humorous.
Carla paints in oils from life. She loves the using strong dramatic lighting often with a dark backdrop as thought the pieces are on stage and the protagonists are in the spotlight.
Carla has studied Tonal Realism at The Victorian Artists Society & undertake continued study though painting workshops.
