About her art practice, Karla writes:
Tucked away in the loft of a machine shop outside Sperling, Manitoba, I have created my first major collection which I affectionately call “Piano Project.” This project began in 2011 funded by the Manitoba Arts Council Emerging Artist Craft Grant. It is based on and incorporates pieces of my childhood piano. Since then I have deconstructed 3 additional unwanted pianos and created 50 pieces of wearable art. My intention is for these pieces to cause the same reaction as walking past a piano. I want that uncontrollable need to touch transferred to each piece I have created.
