After moving to Arizona in 1984, Ms. Cebrelli began teaching pencil drawing classes for beginners through advanced. Most of her time, however, is spent creating portraits which are now displayed in the homes of many distinguished clients.
"The compliment I get most often," says the artist. "Is that I bring the subject's individual personality to life."
Carla Jean Cebrelli's portraits make the moment "live again" for her clients. She does what most computers are still incapable of.......capturing the aura of her subjects. She captures the exact likeness using colored pencil blended with pastels, and her pencil drawings offer those of us with that love for black and white to experience incredible accuracy and detail. Her oil paintings render her subjects with fantastic photorealism.
Ms. Cebrelli's specialties include adults, children, horses, and dogs. And she has been featured in such publications as the "Phoenix Gazette", "The Carefree Enterprise", and "The Desert Advocate".
