Karla Nathan’s art has had major shifts over the years ~ beginning as a water colorist focusing on florals and portraits and then traveling the country as a muralist and painting hotels, day care centers and private homes. However, she was always drawn to a more vintage style and soon she was transferring her painting from walls to old furniture which blossomed into a thriving antique business in her home. While at auctions buying furniture, she found herself attracted to boxes of crumbled ephemera, soft petals of millinery, tubs of yellowed linens, delicate lace and other vintage lovelies and began doing collage and assemblage work with these fragile items.
No matter what medium has intrigued Karla throughout her lifetime, she’s always had the same aesthetics and “pretty” was her goal. She will always be drawn to the look of flowers and all things pretty. Karla’s work has been featured in over 50 publications from Better Homes and Gardens Paint Decor and Romantic Homes to many of the Somerset magazines. She lives in Lawrence, Kansas with her husband and darling Yorky pups in a home surrounded by her trademark style and paintings. You can read more about Karla by following her Blog.
