Karla Field is an independent artist based in Pasadena, California. A graduate of Art Center College of Design, she has worked as a toy designer at Mattel, Hasbro, and Applause Gifts. Under the name Culture Craft Kids, she teaches cultural arts and crafts from around the world to children ages 5 to 12. She now focuses on creating characters and landscapes in the context of dimensional illustrations.
For her Zócalo Sketchbook, Field has crafted an exuberant array of flowers out of brightly colored felt, which bring her joyfully bucolic designs into the third dimension. As you peruse Field’s super-saturated floral arrangements, keep an eye out for recurring elements, as several of the individual flowers and leaves make repeat appearances!
