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!

July 7th to 9th Toronto Outdoor Art Fair Link

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers!!

“Mommy made cookies” 12inx12in, acrylic on canvas, original and prints available through my on-line shop.  Go to IG bio for my website link.
This painting was inspired by my mother’s love of baking.  Her love language was by feeding us.  She loved filling our tummies with goodies.  That cookie jar was always filled but we emptied it quickly.  Yum!!
