A little about Carla Blackman

Carla Blackman, originally from Warwick in England, has travelled the world extensively, but is now a permanent resident of Far North Queensland, where she has made her home.
Based on the Cairns Northern Beaches, she has been greatly influenced by the vibrant colours of tropical reef fish, which she captures brilliantly on her silk originals.
Carla enjoys painting on silk as a medium since it is well suited to creative expression with bright colours. The vibrancy of the finished artwork is an appropriate reflection of her tropical environment.
Carla has work in private and corporate collections throughout the world. Her beautiful silk originals make an outstanding statement and add a touch of the tropics to any room.

Our Creative Team has outdone itself this month (put on those sunnies everyone) ...

Please upload the DIRECT link to your actual entry with the link tool on the LEFT by midnight July 31st, 2012. We'd love to see your paper, digital, card and off the page submissions but please remember we appreciate original entries (you may combine with a sketch).
