ART BY KARLA
Karla Nemitz, a USCG veteran and illustrator, has been drawing since she could pick up a pencil. After serving for five years as an Electrician's Mate she pursued electrical work in construction, but always kept up her love of art. Karla is also the illustrator of the children's book "Why Is That Doggy in the Store?" which discusses the important roles service dogs play. When she's not drawing mermaids and satirical comics, she's out hiking the beautiful trails of Alaska with her daughter, Penny.
