CONTEMPORARY JUDAICA BY ISRAELI AND JUDAIC ARTISTS

Karla Gudeon

Hand-colored Engravings, Ketubot, Paintings

 

Gudeon Family Press came to be in 1998 when Karla left a teaching career to pursue her art full-time. She was determined to be an example for her young children when telling them they should grow up to pursue their passions.

Upon buying a printing press, Karla developed her distinctive approach to the age-old technique of hand-colored engraving, building upon the watercolor work she honed at Parsons School of Design. Karla's current body of work is influenced by illuminated manuscripts and folk art, and thematically portrays the most meaningful elements of her life: family, culture, strong women, an open-minded world view, and the natural world.
