Carla D'aguanno is a BFA graduate of the Otis/Parsons School of Design. She began her career as a movie poster artist and illustrator.
In 1992 Carla realized that she needed to paint from the heart and the subjects of her affection. Thus, she turned to fine art and began painting children, animals, and Western genre, bringing the beauty of her subjects to life on a canvas. Her greatest source of inspiration comes from her faith in God who has given her the skill and ambition to paint since childhood. She feels the need to capture the innocence and beauty of her subjects to glorify the Creator, who in her opinion is the greatest artist who ever lived.
Carla is a chosen Mill Pond Press artist. Many of her images are now being licensed on puzzles, greeting cards, prints, calendars and other products being sold in the U.S. and Europe.
She has received numerous awards for her work - the most recent achievement was becoming the recipient of the John Steven Jones Purchase Award at the 21st Bosque Conservatory Art Classic. The juried show was judged by acclaimed artist, Martin Grelle and her piece entitled ‘Sabino Gold’ won the coveted top award in the show and is now part of the Bosque Conservatory’s private collection.
Galleries and collectors take notice, she is an artist to watch.
