Episode 17: Art as an Outlet with Carmen Lew

From as early as Carmen can remember she processes things through art, her parents divorce and later living away from her family. Born in Vancouver she is now finding her voice an an illustrator in Toronto. Working freelance for client’s like the Grape Witches and featuring at markets including Stackt that launched just in time for the warmer weather. Carmen shares with us that there is still that sense of needing to validate herself to family and the comfort that can come from having a partner, even if he’s completely opposite to you creatively but is keen to understand. At the end of the day she works hard, and strives to make quality work that leaves client’s happy while challenging her. A goal that many creatives relate to but not all jobs meet.
