Charla Elizabeth is an artist who honors nature and its feminine essence.

Early ecofeminists saw connections between the treatment of nature and women – both often treated as afterthoughts. This treatment has resulted in a world that is off balance, with masculine energy being favored over feminine. Her goal is to help bring the world into balance by uplifting feminine energy.

Cultural, social and political forces are giving rise to a long-awaited movement that amplifies women’s voices and experiences, with the objective of ensuring that acceptance and validation of women, in all aspects of society, will become the natural order. Elizabeth’s work reveals and glorifies the pure, natural and fundamental feminine being, and highlights aspects of feminine energy – soft, magnetic, open, reflective and flexible – in keeping with the trajectory of today’s women’s movement. To achieve a healthy balance, we need a shift in our understanding of and reverence for the masculine and feminine, such that neither is distorted and both are recognized.

Charla graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Art, and subsequently earned an M.Sc. in Communications Design from Pratt Institute. She is the recipient of two Pollock-Krasner grants for her sculpture, and has exhibited in solo exhibitions at the June Kelly Gallery, New York, NY and the Central Park Arsenal Gallery, New York, NY. Her juried competitions, include the National Academy of Design, New York, NY, the Fassbender Gallery, Chicago, IL, and Barrett House Galleries in Poughkeepsie, NY where she won a first place award for her painting, Beech. Charla has exhibited both her sculptures and paintings at the California African American Museum and, most recently, she won a grant from the Barbara Deming Money for Women Foundation.
