Karla emphasizes the figures, shapes, and poses, blending them with the environment to fully convey the atmosphere of the scene. The artist is transfigured through her works into a peaceful fighter.

Her artwork belongs the category of two-dimensional depiction in traditional medium of oil on canvas. She draws directly on the base by freehand making use of proportions to achieve the measurements. Mentally she composes the scenarios from different images, adapting the time, lights, and colors.

Her paintings can be appreciated from near and far due to the diligence in developing the details.

The distinctive and recurrent use of desaturated colors transfer realism to the canvas. It also transmits characteristics of humid tropical climate to the artwork and allows an allegorical interpretation of the condition of her country of origin: land wealth tarnished by loss of basic human rights and values. This characteristic accompanies Karla throughout all her work, even when she paints different places, as a mourning of the Venezuela that once was.
