Mandaleaf cycles mandala made with leaves. pet portrait Boston terrier

Carla Pelkey is an artist and graphic designer in Calgary, Alberta, Canada whose love of nature led to the creation of a novel artform. Having worked with the transformational mandala using traditional art materials, Carla was inspired to use autumn leaves she had collected instead. This led to other designs and images of figures, animals and scenes. Along with her digital experience and entrepreneurial spirit, her line of artwork values ingenuity, nature and it’s cycles, yet began from virtually nothing. Carla is a graduate of the Alberta College of Art with a major in Visual Communications.
