Carla, You are truly a gifted artist in ways I struggle to put into words. Not only did you capture Willy's physical beauty, but you captured his heartwarming personality through his eyes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My husband will cherish this lasting memory of his best friend. xoxo Kelly

I am extremely happy to have found Carla to do a portrait of my dog Morgan. She is such a great artist and lovely person, easy to deal with and very helpful. My husband is a painter and he is VERY impressed with the likeness and expression of Morgan's face and how it really shows his character. Thank you very much Carla! It was a great birthday gift and, according to him, the best gift he has ever had. Sincerely, Anna

About

Welcome to my shop!

I began developing my artistic abilities in high school, and earned a Bachelor of Art Degree in Art and Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Graphics. I gained recognition through a college internship in which I created computer graphics for a project exhibited at Chicago's Museum of Science & Industry in 1985.
My art is in private collections throughout the US as well as internationally, most recently to buyers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Japan, Scotland, Sweden, Spain, Norway, Malta, Italy, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
My recent accomplishments include:
*** In 2012, I was commissioned by the Cumberland Pencil Company (Derwent) in the United Kingdom to do a flamingo drawing that is now shown on their colored pencil set packages, sold worldwide!
*** In 2013, four of my wildlife drawings were featured on the set of AMC TV’s show “Low Winter Sun”.
*** In 2014, 16 of my drawings were selected to be featured in "Colored Pencil Sketching" activity kits sold in craft stores across the nation.
I reside on my family farm in the rolling hills of Eastern Iowa. Surrounded by cornfields and cattle, my love and respect for nature is reflected in my deeply realistic artwork.
I love drawing wildlife, but recently I have been drawing a lot of pet portraits for people (mostly whose pet has recently passed away). I find it most rewarding, because people love their pets so much, and they are emotionally attached to the artwork. It is very rewarding to make people so happy!
