Carmen Caldwell showcasing upcyled bags at Artfest Port Credit!

About the Artist:
Born in Transylvania, We raised as free spirist. Love, family, freedom, school and nature were Carmen Caldweill's feeds.

As a professional, Carmen chose to be an aeronautical engineer.  What is that?  You ask...
Aerospace engineering is the primary branch of engineering concerned with the research, design process, development, construction, testing, science and technology of aircraft and spacecraft. 

Carmen worked in research and at an airline. One of her hobbies included sewing. Carmen has been actively sewing since the early age of five!  When she met her husband, she left her home and accompanied him around the world.

So far, the couple has resided in more than 10 countries!

Thus, her ethnic Romanian inheritance was enriched enormously. Carmen's sewing quickly became an expression of the inside tumult, of the dual character of her lifestyle which involved the need of functionality and beauty in a dynamic surrounding.

Carmen has always strived to create unique textile products, mostly clothing, appealing to each community which she has lived in. That proved Carmen has a lot to offer! Abstract and practical worlds are both comfortable spaces for her. She uses them daily and is defined by them.

Carmen is rigorous and a perfectionist by profession with a practical and functional approach as a producer.  She is spontaneous, original, vibrant and daring as an artist. Quality, efficiency and ecology are standing matters in her work. 

Visit her booth at Artfest Port Credit and feel free to ask her about her travels!  See you at the show, from May 29 - 31!
