About Carla...

Hello, my name is Carla.
I live ( together with my husband,) in Zwolle. Zwolle is a town with about 130000 citizens. We have a daughter, she is 27 years young and she graduated at the art academy in Groningen.(Bachelor fine arts)
Her website :www,

My hobbies are painting , drawing, reading, (thrillers, true stories, books about art and about countries,) taking pictures, visiting second hand shops and fleamarkets and most of all collecting everything with and about pandas. And I'm trying to learn the Russian language ....
.(But I'm just a beginner,.)

My favorite songs: The answer of Sambora. And I am free, Kipelov.
Love of my life Queen
My favorite Streetart artist: Banksy
My favorite colours: blue and purple.
My favorite cities: Berlin., Hongkong . Krakau (and I hope to discover more great cities one day...)
My favorite paintings: realistic pieces of art. (Russian: Repin. Dutch:
Willink, to give some examples)
My favorite animal: the panda

I'm a volunteer in a second hand-store. One of the aims of this shop: recycling and reparing goods and give these things a second life. My responsibility : the corner with the books.
