About

My name is Carla Grace and I am inspired by beautiful art that is technically strong as well as visually pleasing. I have been creating art since a young age, but have only recently been working full time in my field. I love art that can be understood and connected with on a visual basis, and rather than complicating a piece, my ambition is to simplify it.
I grew up in different parts of Africa, namely South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia and so have lived with a love for culture and wild life. I also love to paint and draw eyes! To me they capture the sole of the image, and once that is perfect I can confidently finish a piece. I am inspired by beauty, in its simplicity and intricate complexities.

Feel free to get in touch or check out my website www.carlagraceart.com as I blog about my work and processes. There is also a studio page that shows my working process and pieces that I have on the go prior to completion.
