On her Website, www.reservoirfarmstudio.net, Karla states,
 
“I believe that the inclusion of animals in our homes serves to enhance our humanity and allows us to appreciate the beauty of the world around us.
 
For my entire life, I have been surrounded by a menagerie: cats, dogs, hedgehogs, rabbits, birds, mice, and fish have all at one time or another inhabited my heart and home.
 
I have found that using my love of animals with my love of painting makes for a winning combination.  With each animal I paint, I attempt to bring that animal’s personality through the painting to the viewer.  My greatest success is to see a smile flash across someone’s face when they see my paintings.
 
I live in Andover, MA with my husband, three sons, two Italian Greyhounds, a variety of foster bunnies, and Stuart the Wondercat.”
