Carmel McCarney

My art is a reflection of the people, places and experiences that bring me joy.   Each work is an effort to capture the small but important moments that make life special; such as a swim in the ocean at first light, enjoying the last rays of a velvet sunset, or simply taking a moment to be still and reflect.

Time stops for me when I am in my studio.  Surrounded by nature, with my favourite music at top volume, I can’t help but be inspired. The Coastal lifestyle and travel allow me to draw influence from so many wonderful experiences.  All of this, with a love of fashion and style thrown in, comes together to create contemporary works that aim to communicate connection and emotion through stroke and colour.
