Carmen Chan is a VISUAL ARTIST living in beautiful Vancouver, 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. 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.
Inspired by her years of painting on Saturdays at her art teacher's home, Carmen has developed a nostalgic appreciation for a thoughtful painting process. She 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 focused on calm and relaxation- her idea of a perfect weekend morning.
Carmen’s watercolour paintings have been exhibited at the Surrey Art Gallery, Kafkas Cafe, ROVE and 100 Braid St Studios. She has participated in Vancouver Mural Festival, painting a group mural (No Rain, No Flowers, 2018) and a solo mural (Saturday kind of love, 2019). Carmen is a member of the THRIVE mastermind community -Vancouver chapter.
