me, my art and inspiration...!
"Throughout high school and college, I took all the art and photography classes offered at the time. Once my children were mostly grown, I tip-toed back into a more focused creative life. It began with photography and a 'secret' daily practice of drawing and sketching a variety of subjects, from simple doodles to portraits using charcoal. I soon found that I could not wait to get home from my day job to play in my sketchbook. It brought much relaxation and the stress of the day would melt away. This same daily practice is still an important part of my life today. My art is personal, emotional and a reflection of my own experiences. Each painting has a different story. I incorporate a variety of mediums both traditional and non traditional.
I paint to remember my life, thank you for being here. - Carmen. "
A lifelong Mid-westerner, Carmen calls Wisconsin home.
Favorite things: Long nature walks enjoying the Wisconsin landscape, good food, great conversation and cherished time with friends and family. In the in-between moments, Carmen can be found in my studio painting and creating.
A portion of the proceeds of art sales will be donated to a thoughtfully selected program benefiting children.
