“Creativity, observation & a general awe of all things beautiful have been a part of my life always.” Carla Tucker
Based in Melbourne, Carla graduated from Textile Design at RMIT and worked in the fashion & textile industry for many years. Eventually she was seduced by the pure creativity of oil painting.
Since 2015, Carla has been dedicated to oil painting full time. Carla paints from life as it allows her to construct a subject with a strong design element & observe the result of daylight on the objects. Carla’s inspirations are abundant from modern masters; Matisse, Van Gogh, Gauguin and closer to home Australian Modernist painters such as Alison Rehfisch and Grace Cossington Smith. A self-confessed op & vintage shop addict, she’s forever scouring the aisles for the “perfect find” to include in a set up. Carla has undertaken many courses & workshops at both Australian & overseas studios.
In 2020, Carla gained recognition and her work was exhibited at Michael Reid in Sydney. Michael Reid will also hold Carla’s first NSW solo exhibition in Murrurundi end 2021.
