Welcome to Carmen's Images Virtual Gallery & Gift Shop
My first message is one of gratitude for my family and friends! This virtual gallery and store would not be possible without my sister Gail, and the support of my wife Gail, our daughters, niece, and my brother In-law. Carmen's Images is a family affair and I could not make this project happen alone, creating the art is a solo job but creating an online business takes a team. From the bottom of my heart I say, thank you! And to all my friends that have supported me along this earthly journey, thank you.
Forty-one years ago I graduated with a BFA, not having a clue what I would do with an art degree but with the experience of playing hockey for a university 1200 miles away from home in another country. I knew one thing, I wanted to return to my hometown and help my community, get married, and raise a family - so far so good. . Forty years ago, I married my high school sweetheart, we raised three amazing daughters together, and I am still in the same town and loving it (this sounds like a hallmark movie lol). I have played old-timer hockey with my brothers and life-long friends, I worked in the not-for-profit sector to raise money to better my community, and in February 2020 I retired. I am now working full-time as an artist, fulfilling a lifelong dream and looking forward to every day. When I had a full time position, I always looked forward to the weekend but since l retired - every day is a Saturday!
