Karla Gudeon's current body of work is influenced by illuminated manuscripts and folk art, and thematically portrays the most meaningful elements of her life: family, culture, strong women, an open-minded world view, and the natural world. Karla chose the name Gudeon Family Press for her collection as a tribute to her parents, grandparents, siblings, step-siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins who demonstrate how life can be lived as an artistic extravaganza. Karla's celebrated paintings are displayed in galleries and distinguished collections throughout the country and abroad. Her images have been commissioned for book covers, calendars, greeting cards and award winning children's books. Karla lives in New York with her two supportive and amusing sons, Sam and Max.
