Ana Paola studied painting and drawing from life at Knox College in Illinois, and at the University of Kansas. She worked in Chicago for nearly four years before moving to New York.

“Having inherited a Midwest limited/basic palette, I try to make sense of the clutter found in my surroundings. Often starting from life, alignments are fictionalized and reality is suppressed to give the viewer an intimate and optimistic look into ordinary and isolated places. Lately, I am exploring my Mexican heritage, recognizing how it influences color choice and the tendency to record my own narrative.

Above all, I think hope tends to be the focal point of my work, whether I'm recording people on the train in sketchbooks, or trying to capture the magnitude of skyscrapers. For me, it really comes down to how we inspire people to continue the hard work they do. And I've found, it's by working hard oneself.”

Carla E. Reyes is a painter/mixed-media collage artist. She is inspired by the colors and textures of nature, “primitive” and “folk” arts, and the interaction between natural and man-made surfaces. Through texture, abstract form, and image, she explores and alludes to the fundamental elements and mysteries of nature and existence: impermanence, decay, regeneration, birth, growth, history, archeology and spirituality. Some collage materials come from nature, like branches, leaves, and sand; while others - household items like packaging twine or crepe paper.

Carla graduated from F.I.T., NYC, with a BFA in Restoration and Fine Arts, and is currently completing a Color Specialist certificate program. She has been featured in numerous solo/group exhibitions in NYC and along the East Coast. She has been mentioned in The New York Times, The New York Daily News, BBC World News, and more. She also works as a professional decorative interior surface designer, faux finisher, and scenic/display artist.

Luttrell has allowed herself to appreciate the fragments, both past & present, of her life and bring them into her mind as she drives through her work.

Her recent pieces, labor-intensive works consisting of thousands of cut cards, along with her abstract forms, are labyrinthine. Guiding the viewers eyes through intricate passageways and blind alleys. In close view they reveal their extremely complex and tortuous structure.

Luttrell's works are in corporate and private collections in over twelve countries and have been added to the permanent archives of the Library and Research Center of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.
