About Carmela

Born in 1972, Carmela currently lives and works in Cork, Ireland

Being a self-taught artist, I am continuously studying the theories and techniques of oil painting from the old to present day masters.

Although I always seem drawn to classical painting and employ traditional techniques my work is not defined by any particular style.

When I sit in front of the ever-daunting blank canvas I am reminded that art is a rare entity that can stimulate both heart and mind.

I try to portray this warmth and fragile beauty in my paintings and from there my work continues to develop and evolve.

I have exhibited my paintings in:

The Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh

The Courtyard Gallery, Midleton


My work is sold through the Fine Art Auctions of:
