Biography


Carla's work combines her love of architectural detail and attention to qualities of light that transform commonplace scenes. The result is a body of work that read like snapshots.....found scenes that become still lives, architectural subjects that capture the light and people going about their daily life their story unfolding before us.
 
Born and educated in Canada, Carla Gauthier has lived and worked in the U.S. and Europe, and now resides in Houston, Texas where she continues to paint and teach. While earning her BA in Fine Art and Art History and her Bachelor of Education, she continued to paint in watercolors and oil paints. An education in traditional drawing and printmaking provided her with a solid base in image making.
