Carla van den Berg (1955) was born in The Netherlands, today she lives and works in the north of The Netherlands (Nieuweschans, Groningen).

Carla started painting when she was very young. Her education and work experience are broad. Among other things, she completed the 'School of Fashion Designs' (Modevakschool) and did the teacher training on drawing and textile arts at Ubbo Emmius. On young age Carla was a student of T.G.J. van Eijsden ('Haagse School'). For 10 years she organized and taught courses on designing and making fashion, on the art of textile paintings, and on drawing cartoons. She has also produced cartoons for the VPRO gids (the radio and television guide of a Dutch public broadcasting corporation).

In the eighties and nineties Carla van den Berg focused most of her attention on textile arts and sketching with pastel. In those years, her textile portraits have been on display at different exhibitions. Carla started her own company CathDesign.nl in January 2001 and started the project KunstConcept.nl in spring 2003.

Carla has been a professional artist and has joined the BBK (Dutch Professional Organization of Visual Artists) since the beginning of 2005. Between 2005 and 2006, she worked on a series of acrylic paintings on own hand-pressed paper. Occasionally, she added twigs or threads of raffia to the paper. At the moment, Carla mainly works with acrylic paint and mixed media on canvas.
