I'm a little quirky with a child-like approach to life in spite of being around some very serious stuff. You'll see both sides-the lighthearted and the serious in my art.
I've photographed people and nature for as long as I can remember. I really focused in on nature because it was a joy to be outside. I could spend what felt like 30 minutes and find the clock moved 2 hours! I sit, crawl, lay on my stomach with flowers waiting for bees, butterflies and ladybugs.
Being and connecting with nature has always been the one thing to make everything else okay. I really needed a bit of 'okay' in my life after spending over 40 years in healthcare as a nurse/nurse practitioner. After "retiring" from healthcare, I wrote a book about families impacted by dementia which included family photos and stories. I later started a nonprofit called Doggies for Dementia Foundation. A portion of every purchase is donated to Doggies for Dementia.
My husband and I love to travel. We design our trips around the best photo spots, and keep in mind the best photo spots are often the unexpected ones. Be sure and take a look and follow my Instagram and Facebook pages for some Behind the Scenes Fun.
Carmen's Fine Art has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
Nature-the budding, the blooming and the finale are all awe inspiring for me.
I use an Olympus camera-the professional, fancy versions along with some regular lenses and some special lenses to embrace the blur called Lensbaby lenses.
My art has been featured in The Photographer Magazine, Beginnings Magazine and on Austin ABC and NBC affiliate television stations. Just See Me-Sacred Stories from the Other Side of Dementia is my book on Amazon.com.
