Featured Artist.

Carla Hefley

My art has evolved in a short amount of time but my first love has always been to paint flowers of some kind. I venture off to landscapes and animals but will always come back to flowers in some form. They make me happy, they make others happy.

I often find myself in a restaurant, diner or even a friend’s house and the flowers on the table or the décor drive me to snap a photo and quickly go back to my easel to paint it. I look at a photo or a scene and get the desire to recreate it on canvas.

With recent portrait workshops, I'm dipping into the world of portraits too.
