Working with an impressionist's focus on how light, shadow, and color can be pushed just beyond reality, Charla is a nature, abstract, and portrait artist who combines oils, pencil, and other media to communicate the universal experience of a world altered by the onlooker's perceptions. 

"When we encounter something that moves us emotionally, why does the visual memory of that experience so often assume richer, even other-worldly dimension in the mind's eye?"

An award-winning fine artist who creates commissioned artwork, including portraiture, upon request, Charla studied fine art during her undergrad years at University of Southern California and Santa Monica College. She also apprenticed with Marie Jones, her paternal aunt and a well-known street artist back in the day when Westwood, CA, was a thriving artist's colony.

Charla's primary residence, workspace, and muse is the quiet seaside village of Cambria, CA.
