Carla Hefley

Artist Statement

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.

Artist Bio

Carla's artistic talent lay dormant from the age of 14 to 53, when in 2009, the creative juices bubbled up. Combined with a love for color and realism, her art started to form through her first endeavor, Fan In Window. Carla's art is representational art with a touch of realism. She paints anything from flowers, landscapes, animals, fruits and vegetables, and still life. Her current tools of the trade are oils. Carla is a proud born and bred Oklahoman, growing up in Broken Arrow. She married her best friend, Robert in 1976, and Tulsa has been home since then. They have raised two successful daughters with one granddaughter being her new muse.
