Carmen Chan is a VISUAL ARTIST living in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Carmen paints in the style of Chinese Brush painting, a delicate and traditional form of Chinese watercolour painting on feather light and porous rice paper, which is inspired by her Chinese heritage and nostalgic appreciation for a thoughtful painting process. Luxurious silk fabrics are used for mounting the artwork and framed using a traditional method which soaks the entire painting with water to smooth out wrinkles and mend any rips.
Carmen believes art and painting can be a form of self care and self reflection. She is the creator of the Morning tea and Watercolour painting class, a painting workshop inspired by her idea of a perfect weekend morning.
Her paintings have been exhibited at the Surrey Art Gallery, Kafkas Cafe, ROVE and 100 Braid St Studios. She is a muralist for the 2019 Vancouver Mural Festival. Carmen is a member of the THRIVE mastermind community -Vancouver chapter.
