I met with Carla last week to photograph her in her Petersham studio. Brimming with with her new body of work layered up against the walls ready to send to the framers for her next show at the Art House Gallery. Carla was adding the finishing touches to the last painting but being a working mother Cala was also juggling the needs of her vivacious three year old Juliette .
It was Juliettes day off from pre school so it was fitting that she accompany her mum to the studio wearing a sweatshirt with one of Carla's paintings on it. Carla has collaborated with Mad About Mini , her painting “Mountains” is featured on a selection of childrens wear that is part of their 2017 Winter Collection. Carla has an incredible talent for capturing all that is breathtaking and majestic about nature. This particular watercolour is a scene from one of her favourite spots in the south island of New Zealand, a place she refers to as ‘paradise’. Needless to say Juliette really stole the show on the day and the love of this young mum and her gorgeous daughter was so gorgeous to photograph.
