Portrait of a thoughtful and hopeful elderly woman. The wrinkles on her face and hands are evidence of the experiences she has encountered through her life. This painting was created live at the Tempe Festival of the Arts in 2019.
I’m Christina Carmel, and I create beautiful, thought-provoking artwork that tells a personal story and invites you and your loved ones to join in on the conversation. It’s statement storytelling with soul; inclusive art with heart - provoking conversations that celebrate the rawness, realness, compassion, heartache, and joy of our shared human experience.
I LOVE Christina’s work. It’s so honest and REAL. Her work is s true representation of women and people in society. She doesn’t paint what a stereotypical society thinks people should look like, who they should love, or what an “ideal” look of happiness is. I bought her CEO painting and it is by far one of the most exquisite pieces I’ve ever had. She portrayed the strong black woman in a simple, colorful, and breathtaking way. This painting is how I see myself, and I thank her for creating it. She’s AMAZING!
Christina is an amazing artist who so perfectly captures the relationships, thoughts and feelings of the subjects in her paintings. We own her piece "Finally." She is great to work with, is very quick to respond to messages and is very flexible in working with clients who want to bring her pieces home!
There is so much life in Christina's art! The way Christina captures the essence of these amazing figures is beyond beautiful and more than eye-catching. The colors are on another level! Christina is an incredible human being and her passion for people shows through her awe-inspiring talent. I'm a proud owner of a beautiful and powerful piece painted by Christina and cannot wait to be the owner of more. Christina's work is not to be missed and she can do custom orders too!
Excited to be the proud owner of a Christina Carmel piece that I’ve been admiring and finally purchased. Cannot wait to have “Cigar Ladies” framed and in the house, it brings so much fun energy to any space it occupies and is hard to pass without smiling. Highly recommend checking out Christina’s collections, powerful art that possesses an uplifting spirit and is visually captivating.
Christina is not just an incredibly gifted artist, she’s an incredible human being. My commissioned painting of me and my precious cat that recently passed is my most treasured possession. The way she was able to capture our special bond and love made my heart just feel like it was exploding. I truly didn’t know what to expect but any expectations I may have had were completely surpassed. She made certain she had every detail perfected. Christina puts her whole heart and soul into her work and that is why it’s extra special. Highly recommend her for any painting you may want.
