Carla Brooke

I'm an art teacher originally from New York State and now retired, living in Florida. For many years I have experimented with several areas of creativity. Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed sewing my own clothes and making designer outfits for my dolls.

For several years my husband and I covered arts and entertainment as correspondents for
a local newspaper. I enjoyed participating in special events such as the Menendez Birthday Festival, which took place in St. Augustine. For that event I dressed in a 16th century Spanish wardrobe of my own design. I’ve enjoyed the theater arts so much that eventually I tried out and won parts in four local productions.

I worked as a scrapbook instructor and paper crafting teacher for a year at Michaels, where I learned many new techniques and used a lot of great new tools! I'm currently designing scrapbook pages, making cards and working on altered canvas. My art work is for sale locally and has been published in a few magazine. I received an honorable mention on line for a piece I created. For the latest stop on my journey, I take part in designing cards for challenges and belong to several design teams.

I love working with cute images and enjoy putting them in scenes. My go to medium has been colored pencils, but I just began working with Copic Markers and I am loving them. I do enjoy trying out new mediums and techniques. Lately, I have been playing with gelatos. Life right now is full and busy designing and coloring lots of greeting cards.
