Growing up in a family touched by mental illness, Carla learned at a young age to search for beauty in unexpected places. Now as she views the world around her she sees the ordinary through the lens of possibility and faith. Sadness and struggle are not void of beauty and light.
This informs her work. City scenes, nature landscapes and macro images are all seen through that lens of hope.
Having sold her photography all over the world and exhibited work in Chicago and Winnipeg, hearing that her work resonates with those in her hometown is most meaningful. Carla is passionate about seeing and showing Winnipeg through her lens.
