Carleta started painting in August 2014 after being medically terminated from a nursing career of 46 years. 'I love colour and like to inject an element of fun into my paintings. At present I tend to stick to acrylic, although I have enjoyed workshops in oils, watercolour, and mixed medias, and I still get excited about learning new techniques.
I have concentrated on portraits and usually accept about 6 commissions annually. I paint portraits from photographs and I use credit cards, or part there of to do the portraits. In between portraits I add to what I call my credit card collection. These are original prints and paintings on paper.
I am enjoying my art at this time, and hope to continue into the future.
