Welcome, to the art world of
Carla Almanza-deQuant

Artist / Sculptor / Co-Creator /
Wife and Mother / World Traveler

* * * Award Winning Artist * * *

At the age of twenty, while studying in Florence, Italy, Carla learned the technique of venetian mask making and Commedia dell’ Arte. She studied with world famous Master Mask Maker, Professor Agostino Dessi, using the ancient techniques of the 16th and 17th century. Having created her own techniques through the years, based on these ancient teachings, she developed her own style in sculptures and fine arts. She is a true innovator yet remains true to her art basics. Her visions start in her imagination, allowing her sculptures to magically come alive through her hands, to create a timeless art piece.

When she returned from Europe, she developed her own style inspired and drawing heavily from nature. Using ECO FRIENDLY materials to create her artwork, collectors are amazed and pleased to know, that their purchases of her art also help the planet. Carla’s unique approach for her sculptures by utilizing natural materials like: woods, leaves, roots, flowers, seashells, corals, silver and gold leaf materials, to name a few, help her creations come alive. She sculpts in both plaster and paper mache. Clients have also commissioned her to create special themes they wish to have. Her passion, vision, and non-compromising attention to detail are evident in all her one-of-a-kind creations. She uses live models to create a variety of poses and capture the shape and forms of human torsos, busts, faces, legs, hands, etc. She also makes belly castings (pregnancies), that can capture very important moments in time.  Then she applies varieties of finishes to suit your taste.

“If you can imagine it, we can create it; your vision is our creation.”

Bringing the world together through art.
