This lovely artwork was illustrated in Karla's January 2018 Newsletter. I saw it and immediately contacted her to inquire about purchasing it and the matching note cards. Karla nearly instantly got back to me with the link for Etsy and maintained communication with me until the package was received. Every piece of art I have seen crafted by Karla is simply beautiful. But this particular woman in this particular headwrap with those orange bee-stung lips is particularly gorgeous. I once modeled for a sculptor from Australia so when my mother saw the piece her immediate reaction was "Is that you?" Perhaps that is why the image prompted such a visceral response from me. I can only hope to one day embody such elegance.

About

I paint & write to create myself

I believe that I am meant for creativity and connection.

I believe that the act of creation is sacred.

I believe that to live in Love is our highest calling.

I believe that joy and laughter are gifts we should share freely {and often} with others!

I believe fiercely in the power of hope and kindness to heal.

I also believe that women are wild, passionate, vulnerable, complicated, and stronger than we ever imagined!

I seek to honor our stories though exploring and sharing my own.

My hope is that in the sharing of my words & paintings, you are inspired to live in joyful connection with your own story.

Wishing you more peace & joy than your heart can hold!

Creatively,

Karla

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Note that ALL prints will now have the following dimensions (I am working to update the individual listings to reflect this change):

- Paper Size: 8.5" x 11"
- Square Images: 8" x 8"
- Portrait Images: 8" x 10"

This will simplify your matting and framing process!

To best ensure the longevity of your artwork, please keep out of direct sunlight as this can cause your pieces to fade.

For watercolor/graphite works on paper it is best to frame these works in order to protect them from dust or smudging.
