Dimitriou's recent work in encaustic painting and mixed media on tar paper features a cast of animal, human, and mythological creatures. The raw, visceral textures create give these characters a strong visual presence that is at times both dark and humorous. Carla Dimitriou is a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts and the Vermont College of Norwich University. She is also co-owner of Dimitriou's Jazz Alley, a landmark Seattle jazz venue.
An artist of rare intelligence, Dimitrious mixes empathy, ethics, and wit to create sumptuous images that provide ample food for thought. Her work can be found in numerous private collections throughout the Northwest.
