Karla Gudeon – Karla Gudeon Art & Design

March 6, 2019

Karla Gudeon Art & Design came to be when I left a teaching career to pursue art full-time. I was determined to be an example for my young children when telling them they should grow up to pursue their passions.

Upon buying a printing press, I developed my distinctive approach to the age-old technique of hand-colored engraving, building upon the watercolor work I honed at Parsons School of Design. My current body of work is influenced by illuminated manuscripts and folk art, and thematically portrays the most meaningful elements of my life: family, culture, strong women, an open-minded world view, and the natural world.

I live in New York with my two supportive and amusing sons, Sam and Max.
