Currently living on a small farm located on a peninsula just north of Olympia, Carla Louise Paine completed her studies at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence Italy in 2011. Having learned the techniques of the old masters and nineteenth century classical painters, Carla continues the tradition of painting directly from life. Employing northern light in an old farmhouse studio, Carla spends significant amounts of time with her subjects, often live models, trying to capture the essence of what she sees using only paint and a brush.
