Carmen Miquel , painter, born in Barcelona in 1956, studied painting in the fine arts university of Barcelona. She has been showing her art around Spain and Europe regularly since 1989. Her motives involve the richness of color and fresh movement, big sizes where the spectator feels like inside the painting. Three years ago she developed an interest for portraiture which has become more and more profound. To get a hint of spirit of another person and to feel some of the magic of his or her character, expression and beauty. The challenge to fix all these qualities with a brush and nuances of paint is something that captivates her illusion and interest.
