M. Carla Wright
Born in Madrid, Spain and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland, Carla Wright began her art training at the age of six when an acclaimed landscape artist discovered her drawing flowers in a park and offered to teach her. Carla studied under George Douglas for the next ten years, learning "old-school" art principles she continues to put into daily practice.
At the age of fifteen, she was accepted into the renowned Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, but on her father's advice decided to forgo the formal instruction because her art was already selling well. Her specialty, at the time, was painting historical landmarks in Scotland (in fine art, abstract, and impressionism styles) and selling the artwork to private collectors.
Carla has taken traditional landscape art and added a modern twist in her paintings. Her artwork (which is fun and colorful) crosses categories, to include abstract, contemporary, modernism, surrealism, impressionism, fine art, landscape art, and portrait art. She paints in oil and acrylic, on canvas, wooden panels, and ceramic boards. Her artwork ranges in size from 24 inches by 24 inches, to 3 feet by 8 feet, and she creates original art as well as commissioned artwork.
