Carla Flegel

I am a self taught artist that got hooked on art in the '80's folk art craze. I have explored oils, and acrylics but settled on watercolour as my medium.  There is such unpredictability as water, paint and paper merge.  It can be unforgiving and at the same time magical.  My paintings are bright, colourful and humorous.  I always see the fun side of life and my painting classes are no exception.  I hope you can join us for an evening of fun! 

Although i enjoy painting I enjoy teaching it more!  I have a home studio that i taught children and adults for 10 years.  I currently offer beginner and intermediate watercolour classes as well as ARTfull Journaling at The Old School House in Qualicum. I am one of their Resident Artists.  Visit me in Gallery 8!!!

I even got to paint on the whale bones that are hanging in the foyer of the VIU research center in Deep Bay
