About the Artist
Carla J. Clay is a contemporary figurative painter who lives and works in Austin, Texas. Despite her background in computer engineering and science her first love has always been art. A native of El Paso,Texas she reinterprets native and symbolic elements that inspire her.

One of her paintings was the winning painting for the 2017 Georgetown Red Poppy Festival. Her influences broadly extend and include Native American symbolism and modern art.
I use acrylics and watercolors to reinterpret the native world around me.
