Carla's life of colour started on the 14th of January 1976 in Pretoria. Spring's flof of purple in this city could have inspired Carla's bold use of colour.
After finishing an Interior Design diploma at the Tshwane University of Technology (1997), Carla's love for painting took over. Hard work paid off as numerous well-recognized art galleries request her work. Most of these galleries are loyal supporters to this day.
Painting is not Carla's first love. She is madly in love with her husband, Elroy and is an excellent mother to their two children, Sarah and Daniel. It's from this loving environment that Carla's work brings homliness to any space.
"Yellow is my favourite colour. Just a few strokes of yellow will catch the eye and bring any picture to life."
The warmth and cheerfulness of her landscapes, boats and street themes is true to Carla's vibrant personality and her giving nature is evident in her liberal use of bright acrylics.
Carla inherited her talent from her father, who is also her close friend. Although she never studied art, it is Carla's desire to be an ever-developing artist. She embraces every opportunity to interact and learn from other artists.
While Carla's work finds its way all over the world, she and her family now resides in Paarl, South Africa
