ARTWORK BY KARLA MORREIRA

.


Untraditional is the word to describe Karla Morreira's images, she uses watercolor to capture the essence of movement. Form and color are the keys to her heart. Open these pages and discover her world, under the sea and above!

Each piece is rich in life, and all come from her own experiences, whether in reality, or in dreamtime!
Karla will NOT BE AT BAD GIRLS OF THE NORTH FAIRBANKS ON the 30th and Oct 1st.
She will, however, be at the Carlson Holiday show in November in Fairbanks on the 11th, 12th, and 13th of November.

Introduced at the 2011 State Fair:

Wind Swept



Splish Splash



It's important to understand what you're viewing here. Most of these pieces are prints of her original watercolors, she is a self-published artist, and is carried throughout Alaska.

The prints are either sold separately on Mattboard, held down with mylar corners, and shrink wrapped or matted, handpainted and framed, as you will view in this site. This unique process involves Karla taking an image and cuts the mattes for it, then using watercolors handpaints the mattes. Many pieces have matting thick with texture, created with salt crystals. Others, delicate staining, similar to shattered glass.

     Whether design or a continuation of the image, all are special, original and unique. It's important to understand that all work is carefully done by the artist and then framed by her husband Roy. This is NOT a manufacturing operation but a joint artistic enterprise! Enjoy and please contact Karla with any questions!!
