Carla Sutton’s high school art teacher strongly encouraged her parents to make arrangements for her to study further after graduation. Carla’s father instilled an interest in and love of nature. She graduated from Grand Rapids Kendall School of Design’s Illustration program and her subsequent work as an illustrator and graphic artist laid the foundation for a full-time focus on fine art landscapes.
“There’s just something about the (Michigan’s) West Coast. If you’ve lived in or even visited the beautiful western shore regions of Michigan you can understand.” – Carla Sutton
NOTE: You can view Carla’s art and the artworks of over 60 other artists here at J. Petter Galleries. See our Events page to find out if any of your favorite artists will be visiting us for an Artist’s Reception this season.
