CARLA GRACE ART
where wildlife breathes through art
MEET THE ARTIST
Carla Grace is a self taught artist with a love for wildlife and beautiful, high quality art work. Born in South Africa, Carla has immigrated 5 times and currently lives in Australia. With a childhood that was dominantly based in Africa, she was able to experience wildlife in a way that has become the foundation of her vision: Where wildlife breathes through art. "Wild animals were always a part of our lives in Kariba (Zimbabwe, Africa), it was so normal for an elephant to walk through our yard, or for us to drive into the savannah for the afternoon to watch the herds graze as the sun set. I miss this, and want to share the tangible presence of wild nature with as many people as I can". Typically, she always starts a painting with the eyes, and only once the eyes are alive will she continue on with the painting. The most incredible thing about her work is how alive each animal feels when you experience her work in person, no photo can truly express just how tangible each painting is.
