My name is Karla Kay Rasmussen – Benjamin. I am the artist behind Karlakayart.com. I specialize in hand painted silk. In many ways I am painting a watercolor on silk. I use dyes in lieu of watercolor paints. My finished pieces are steam set to make the dyes permanent. I do the hemming myself on a serger or a rolled hem on a sewing machine.
Some people choose to wear my work as a scarf. Some people hang my pieces on the wall as a painting. I carry magnetic frames (which do not harm the silk as they attach to the silk via magnets) if you want to hang my pieces on the wall.
If you have questions or want to commission one of my pieces, you may call/text me at: 425-220-7181. You may also email me at: Karlakayart@gmail.com
There are 2 types of sales:
- Prints (via Fineartamerica.com). At Fineartamerica they print my images on bags, journals, shower curtains, yoga mats, phone cases, etc. Check out my Fineartamerica listings by clicking here: Fineartamerica.com
- Originals. I sell directly from the gallery in my studio. I also try to get to 1 art show each month so people can meet with me and see my pieces in person. Check out my art show listings by clicking here: Upcoming Art Shows
Karla Kay Art Studio Gallery: No internet listings at this time – I just got back from an art show and have to update my listings.
