JUROR – Carla Laureen Bollinger

Carla Bollinger began painting in the 1980s exploring Chinese Brush ink-watercolor art.  This experience encouraged her to continue exploring this creative venture.  She paints in her home art loft and plein air in the Southern California landscape.  Her subjects range from landscapes, florals, abstract, cows, in acrylic, oil, watercolor, and mixed media.  She refers to her artwork as Illusionary Realism.  Her art is owned by individuals and corporations and is a member of the Westlake Village Art Guild.  She is a published author/poet with nature and historic places favorite themes.

She recognized that the Southern California natural world is threatened by development.  Her great concern for the “vanishing landscape” led her to join the Santa Susana Mountain Park Association almost twenty years ago, became a board member/newsletter editor/program chairperson and is a life member; she retired from the board when she moved from the SFV to Ventura County.  She is also a member of the Audubon Society, Sierra Club, and is Director of the Public Land Alliance Network (PLAN).  She works, together with others, to protect the natural environment of Southern California for humans and wildlife.
