About

Artwork and Framing by Carla J. Clay

Austin-based artist Carla J. Clay sees the world through a lens of curiosity, honesty and optimism. Never one to withhold her thoughts or feelings, her work reflects this unrestricted perspective on our world. She is above all things a talent that covers a wide spectrum, whether it be her artwork based in oil, watercolor, sketch, Sharpie marker, or the custom matting and framing of the pieces she has created.
The daughter of an El Paso builder, her family moved often, although always within the same city limits. Growing up, it was common for her to spend her free time doing hands-on projects like woodworking and tinkering with her dad. Now equipped with her own table saw, she has expanded from making bookcases and tables to making custom frames for her art.
Embracing her lifelong passions of riding horses, cooking, caring for her family’s ranch, science, and being a woman around the vibrant Austin social scene, Carla has given as much to the act of living as she has in portraying that life in her art. This passion for life is evidenced in a motley collection of pieces, such as the highly popular, geometrically mind-bending piece “Circuit­tree”. It’s not like she rests on her laurels, either, evidenced by her Sketch of the Day series that reflects the work ethic learned from her parents' diligent example.
Words cheapen true human characteristics, emotions and feelings, so we’ll stop the storytelling there and allow you to browse this site and let Carla’s beautiful collection of art speak for itself. And once you've enjoyed the site, find out how much better it is in person and get some of her pieces for your home. Don’t forget that she’ll mat and frame it for you, too!"

"Art hurts. Art urges voyages - and it is easier to stay at home." Gwendolyn Brooks
