Carmen is a freelance artist living and working in Brisbane, Australia. 

She has always been enthralled by the experience of art-making itself. The feeling of her hands engaging with the materials, the moments before and after mark-making, and the subtle shifts in seeing the natural world around her.

Her work is the accumulation of feelings, memories, landscape, sunsets and sunrises that form into colours and shapes. Her work is primarily driven by the way she experiences the world visually, through the mental notes and pictures she takes as she goes about her day.

Carmen is passionate about the unique impact artwork can have in our lives. She believes that art can create unique, kind and pleasant experiences in the spaces we dwell.

Each piece is built with the highest quality and most sustainable materials available.
