About the Artist

Carmen Crutcher is an absolutely mesmerizing Multi-Disciplinary artist who defies traditional expectations and showcases her extraordinary talent for capturing beauty on canvas. With a unique approach to artistry and an incredible journey of discovery, Carmen is a testament to the power of passion and the limitless potential within each individual.

Born with an innate creativity, Carmen never truly explored her artistic side until the unexpected turn of events in 2020. It was then that she inexplicably found herself drawn to the world of painting, embarking on a journey that would change her life forever. Although she had never picked up a paintbrush before, Carmen quickly realized that she possessed an uncanny ability to create masterpieces.


One of the techniques that played a pivotal role in her development as an artist was painting upside down. This seemingly unconventional method allowed Carmen to focus on capturing the essence of the subject by breaking it down into basic shapes, rather than relying on preconceived notions. Her unique left-brain approach set her apart from other artists, tying her distinctive style to her ability to see beyond the surface and masterfully bring her visions to life.

As Carmen continued on in her creative journey, she learned to use various mediums to express herself. “I consider myself to not only be an oil painter, but rather a Professional Capturer of Beauty”. Many of her art pieces combine a beautiful plethora of mediums, including oil paint, sound, photography, acrylic paint, digital paint, alcohol ink, sculpture and more.
Initially, painting served as a much-needed outlet for Carmen to share a common interest with her daughter. However, she soon discovered that it provided her with a means of finding tranquility amidst her struggles with depression and anxiety. As she delved deeper into the world of painting, she realized that her newfound talent had the power to heal not only herself but also touch the lives of others.


Just a few months into her artistic journey, Carmen achieved a stunning milestone by selling her very first oil painting. This early validation of her talent fueled her determination to pursue her passion wholeheartedly. As word spread about her extraordinary talent, she began to attract attention and gain notoriety in the art community.

In 2022, Carmen reached yet another significant milestone when she successfully opened her very own art gallery inside of the prestigious Twelve Oaks, alongside the likes of other well-to-do retailers including Kate Spade, The Coach Store and Nordstrom. This space became a haven for art enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike, offering them an exclusive opportunity to immerse themselves in her awe-inspiring creations. With each stroke of her brush, Carmen's artworks evoked powerful emotions and transported viewers into a world of vibrant colors, captivating scenes, and intricate details.

Carmen's talent did not go unnoticed by prestigious art juries, who handpicked her for special exhibitions that showcased her exceptional skills. Her artworks caught the attention of curators and collectors, who were captivated by her ability to breathe life into her subjects. Today, Carmen's original artworks are highly sought-after, commanding prices ranging from $3,000 to $20,000 on average.
