Describe the extent of your talent as an artist: 
My works are contemporary drawings and paintings of female nude expressing my view towards the beauty and complexity of Human Body. I work mainly from my mind and occasionally I use different references. This is based on the experience achieved through my Academic artistic education. At that time, I worked only from direct observation. I enjoy as well to paint and draw couples/lovers and groups of people in different environment. I like to work on large surfaces in charcoal and acrylics with bold and loose strokes. I like to experiment and work with different media, surfaces, sizes and techniques. I am constantly looking for developing, exploring and extending my techniques and forms of expression. My style of work is spontaneous, energetic and loose, trying to maintain the freshness. Please visit my gallery and if you can not find what you are looking for please contact me, I am available for commissions. My works are collectible, highly regarded and can be found worldwide in private collections. FREE next day delivery for U.K. Please contact me for worldwide special delivery.
Describe your early memories of your emerging talent as an artist?: 
I was born and educated in Bucharest, the capital of Romania. I had shown an early interest in painting and I was encouraged to study Art. I took a 3 year course in a School of Art and 4 years in The Academy of Art. I was involved in artist’s organisations and took part in different art competitions being awarded with important prizes. Since arriving in England in 1994, I have continued my artistic career developing and extending my techniques. I take part in different exhibitions whenever possible. I mainly exhibit and sell online through my gallery www.carmentyrrell.co.uk and the galleries I joined. My works can be found worldwide in many private collections.
