Carla's technique often involves decorative geometry. She prefers a limited palette, sometimes using only one color besides her basic black. Symmetry plays an important role in her compositions, suggesting order and balance.

She invites viewers of her work to ascend to a "second level" allowing what they see to coalesce with what may be stored in their conscious and unconscious memory. Thus, while her work may be based on a specific theme, or may include symbols borrowed from ancient cultures, what the viewer sees is a highly personal interpretation.

Carla Crow has earned statewide and regional recognition for her unique personal vision expressed through acrylic paintings on both canvas, bark paper and state-of-the-art digital printing on archival papers. Her continuing experiments in the use of handmade bark papers are prompted by her research into Hawaiian and Polynesian art and traditions.

Born in Chicago in 1946, art has always been an influence in Carla Crows life. Carla Crow's passion for art flourished when she moved to Maui, Hawaii in the 80's. Working as a flower harvester provided her needs as she kick started her art career. Inspiration abounded in the beauty of the island and its local color and culture. Carla lived and painted on Maui for 25 years. She is represented by select Maui galleries and returns to her heart's home often. In 2009 her fate landed her in Eugene, Oregon. “I'm in love with the Pacific Northwest. It suits me physically, spiritually and creatively.”

Some of Carla Crow's original paintings were selected by the Hotel Hana-Maui to be used as the matrix for a very limited edition of Giclee prints to decorate the guest suites. If you would like to see these prints, click below:
