Carla is proud to be a contributing artist for a wonderful non-profit organization that provides artistic bedroom makeovers for young people with disabilities. Carla has participated in three bedroom makeovers; the most recent, and most ambitious, took place over the weekend of June 25-27th, for a special boy named Jesus German. The Yankee baseball inspired room, the wonderful volunteers, Jesus and his family, were all featured on NY1, as they awarded Blissful Bedrooms founders as NY1 “New Yorkers of the Week.”

Carla’s proposal for an autumn foliage design for the menu box for the West Village, NYC, Italian restaurant Dell’anima was selected from a call for artists posted on the New York Foundation for the Arts website in the summer of 2009. The display was installed in the fall, and created such a desirable response that Carla was asked to create seasonal displays for the restaurant on an ongoing basis. Pictured above are both the original proposed autumn themed design, and the second installation of Tuscan inspired, individual, hand-stenciled and painted tiles, in a warm, sunny palette.

Visit the display and have a glass of vino and  some pasta at Dell’anima:
