Visual artist and writer based in Illawarra, Australia.
Carmen is an award winning artist currently working out of the Timbermill Studios. Known for her hand printed black and white prints and her love of expressionism, Carmen was raised in an artist community in Melbourne. Carmen’s practice and the evolution of her process has roots in Australian modernism, environmentalism, surrealism and psychology. She is inspired by the natural world and our communion with it. Her love of form and abstract expressionism is the driving force behind her practice. Her bold, balanced, line work is heightened by the physical process of creating and she embraces the imperfect physicality of hand printing.
You can find Carmen’s work at her Timbermill Studio (Studio 10) and the Timbermill Gallery.
She has an upcoming residency and exhibition at The Creative Container in Wollongong from the 13th June 2022 – 26th June.
