Hi, I’m Carmen Gonzalez

I am a contemporary pop/realism artist who loves colour, patterns, and nostalgia. I am inspired by simple everyday objects. My aim is to create artwork that make people smile and reminisce.


Throughout the year, I am honoured to participate in several live art shows and events. I love meeting people face-to-face and I find seeing them connect with my work firsthand so rewarding. I hope to see you at one of these events!

Date Event Link

Top favourites of 2022!  It was a successful year for me!! I completed the most pieces of art I have ever completed in one year.  I love almost all my paintings so it was really difficult for me to pick my favourites.  Did I pick ones that you loved?? 
A new year is about to begin.  Can’t wait to start creating new paintings for 2023!!
