Carla, born a Texan, transplanted to California, continues to love the western way of life, no matter where she hangs her hat. Her grandfather sparked her love for ranching and being horseback early on. She owned her first pony before the age of five, and soon after, fell in love with Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Gabby Hayes on the silver screen.
Over the years her education has confirmed her love for learning; horsemanship, colt training, animal science, civil engineering,
architecture and artwork in graphite, watercolor and photography.
She has worked as an engineering tech, taught horsemanship, and has had opportunities to ride in many places. Her love for the western way of life is
preserved in her photography, writings and artwork about cowboys, cowgirls,
cow-dogs, cow-horses, the beautiful countryside and historic people and locations of the American West.
These days she keeps these passions alive traveling with her canine companion, Rider (an exuberantly happy, ball retrieving, Australian Cattle Dog), in a Chevrolet pickup towing a 5th wheel trailer. For extended stays, they reside in places near her family,
in Northern California, Texas and Western Nevada.
