Originally from the spice island of Grenada in the Caribbean Sea, Karla is the face of a fresh generation of visual artists and writers emerging in the Southern Hemisphere. Self-described as “an acute observer of nature and an imitator of the everyday”, she founded The Naked Canvas Gallery, an online art showcase. Her family migrated to Brooklyn, New York in the early 1990’s and later relocated to Texas. Karla earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from Oklahoma State University (Go Cowboys!). In addition she holds a Bachelor’s in Biblical Studies, an Associates in Liberal Arts, and education credentials in two states. She is a wife and mother who writes for www.eatsleepwrite.net. She is a firm believer in pursuing dreams and making life happen. Learn more about her work at www.nakedcanvas.net
Eve Roberts spent the first half of her childhood in inner-city Louisville and the latter half in the tiny town of Cornishville, Kentucky. After attending college for two years in pursuit of a music degree, Eve switched tracks and graduated from ITT Technical Institute with a degree in multimedia and graphic design. She uses her training daily for everything from building websites to creating book covers and editing photos. The artistic process intrigues her and, having run a successful portrait business for three years, Eve knows the ins-and-outs of art. Besides her digital expertise, she is skilled in several traditional media, including pencil and watercolors. Eve is also a writer, and has several books in various stages of production. She hopes to publish her first urban fantasy novel in the spring of 2015.
Eve lives in central Kentucky with her mother, brother, and young niece and nephew in a beautiful house in the country. She spends most of her day drawing, writing, or working on commissions and plays the piano and sings in her free time.
