Carmen was born in Winnipeg, MB but currently resides in White City, SK.She is a self taught artist and has always used arts as a means to express herself -- dabbling in many different mediums over the years such as sketching, watercolour, and pottery. Although she started her University career in Fine Arts, she graduated with her Bachelor of Human Kinetics degree and spent a few years being a personal trainer. However her true passion always comes back to the arts no matter how far she drifts away. She believes that art should not only be esthetically pleasing but also tell a story and make you FEEL something. Colorful and imaginative landscapes are her specialty, and enjoys combining both realism and abstract ideas in her paintings.
