Five years ago Carla MacDiarmid made one whimsical painting on canvas that sold almost immediately! From that small act of self-expression Carla’s Funky Art came alive. Farmers Market Finds was lucky enough to find Carla’s art while researching the Anacortes Farmer’s Market in Anacortes, WA. Carla’s art takes the everyday and makes it fun and whimsical. Carla, a self-taught artist, creates paintings with bright colors, whimsical animals, crazy people, utter funkiness, and often an important message.
Carla works in mixed media, acrylics and custom works. Her mixed media pieces combine various forms of artwork with her painting, while her acrylic pieces are easily turned into an amazing array of products. Available through Society 6, Carla’s Funky Art has been turned into pillows, t-shirts, laptop and cell phone skins, bedding, shower curtains and so much more! Carla also has the skill to do custom artwork and commissions, taking a little bit of your everyday and turning it into an amazing piece of art.
In addition to the fun and whimsical, Carla makes art that is meaningful, inspiring and uplifting. Many of works in Carla’s Inspired Girls Collection speak to the heart and contain wonderful sayings, words of inspiration and self-determination that all people, but especially woman, can relate too. If you are looking for inspiration, a gift to send to a girlfriend that needs a smile or just something fun and meaningful to hang on your wall, look no further than Carla’s Funky Art.
In addition to creating art, Carla teaches art classes, is writing a children’s book, has a beautiful art journaling page, and keeps a blog that lets you see where her beauty and designs come from. If you need a smile, a gift, or a kind word to inspire you visit Carla’s website. You can find Carla’s Funky Art at Facebook, Etsy, Vango, Society 6, the Anacortes Farmer’s Market and local arts and crafts fairs in the Anacortes area.
