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 prints all over the world and exhibited work in Chicago and Winnipeg, it remains important for Carla to hear that her work resonates with those in her hometown. She is especially passionate about seeing and showing Winnipeg through her lens.
