She rounded out her abilities by attending various art institutes specializing in painting and sculpting. Carmen Guevara, is currently a resident of sunny Fort Myers, Florida.
Carmen has been involved with painting, drawing and sculpting for over thirty years. Her preferred choice of medium is oil or acrylic paint. Carmen’s paintings focus on surrealism, realism as well abstract expressionism. However, her drawing and sculpting target hyper-realism to portraits.
Life experiences, both good and bad, are Carmen’s inspirational roots. She states her mission as: "My goal is for people to connect with my work, at a personal level. Perhaps my work will make someone recall an important event in their life or remember a heart-warming moment. Touching an emotion in others through my work, is what makes me my art worthwhile.
