Carmen is currently working in cast glass and mixed media from her rural studio in Whanganui, New Zealand.
Her practice has evolved from early explorations of women's dress, into defining needle techniques such as crochet, used by women to create dress. Her current work examines how these traditional making processes can be interpreted and used within the creation of her sculptural glass objects.
Carmen graduated from the Whanganui Community Polytechnic/UCOL in 2002, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and from AUT in 2013 with a Master of Art and Design. Her glass work is exhibited and collected within New Zealand and Internationally. Carmen regularly teaches glass-casting workshops and has recently concluded her term as the President of the New Zealand Society of Artist in Glass.Mediums: Glass works, Mixed media materials
