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 enjoy participating in several live art shows and events. I love meeting people face-to-face and seeing them connect with my work firsthand.  As well, I am so grateful to be able to hang my artwork in wonderful Edmonton restaurant/businesses which invite artists to hang our artwork on their walls.  

I hope to see you at one of these events!
