Karla Gudeon is a storyteller. She culls her images from her own cultural heritage and family lore. It is through Karla's natural ability to tell a story, her humor and wit, that her work attains its universal appeal. As with the best folk and lyrical art, Karla's work is wholly accessible while encompassing emotional honesty and layers of meaning. Her chosen medium, the limited edition dry-point engraving, allows her work to circulate to an ever widening circle of collectors and admirers. Each print, hand-watercolered in bright, rich hues, remains truly unique. The imagery, interpretations, and stories embodied in these works touch the soul and warm the heart of the observer. Karla entered her family's artistic and musical world in the Bronx, NY 1961. Her BFA is from Parsons School of Design and she has her masters in education. Karla taught elementary school for 14 years prior to pursuing her art fulltime. Karla lives with her supportive husband and two amusing sons in Smithtown, NY.
