My paintings are an exploration and expression of my personal emotions, interpersonal relationships and recollections of childhood; the human condition; and also influenced by my travel experiences and their influences on my senses as well as inspiration drawn from current fashion and pop culture.

My aim is to represent my world and express, with my chosen media the emotional moments, quirky twists and often humorous encounters of life.

    I have been really busy though, this painting has taken some time and is due to be handed in today. Then onto a commission. My studio is being built too, so builders and their choir are here… they sing all day long to some very old music : )

    i like your style :)

  • Thank you Amanda – this is one of about 3 that I work in, but although it may look the easiest with the simple shapes, I find it by far the hardest, once I have painted in what I want there isn’t much room for error and I have to be very disciplined with my colour. Thank you for your comment!

    Love the colour and energy in this, reminds me of someone but cant think who at the moment, lots of redbacks, must be packed with pommies LOL, nice work, good luck with the exhibition, how exciting :-)

    great work Carmen… this one is fun.. and I love when that silly dog makes an appearance!

  • I know you love that dog. I think the next one I paint should be titled
    ‘no pissing in the pool’ or perhaps one featuring lots of dogs – ‘dog beach’? xxx
