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!

Finally back in my studio working hard prepping cradled birch blocks for new pieces!! 
April and May were busy months filled with learning new business skills, lots of paperwork, computer work, website work, newsletter, and many other endless responsibilities.  These things all had to get done.  I wish I could just paint all day and all the other things just magically get done by my very own artist fairy.  I wish it was as simple as waving a wand.  An artist must wear many hats and it can be overwhelming sometimes.  I spent many hours working hard at learning new skills for help my art business.  So much to learn. 
But, last week, I was finally back painting again working on new pieces for Whyte Avenue Art Walk as well as a new secret series that I finally started.  I will start sharing my new work soon.
