About the Artist

469dc251 a9d9 4b98 9b00 d467b8e007ef

Carla Weeks (b. 1985) is a Philadelphia-based artist and designer who uses pattern as a vehicle to describe place. Her paintings, textiles, and large scale mural work are recorded visual memories, informed by her personal interactions with both natural landscapes and the built environment. By distilling the color and form experienced in specific geographic locations, Carla aims to create 2-dimensional patterns that communicate a resonating sense of place.
