About the Teaching Artist

Since arriving on Maui in 1981, Carmen Gardner’s artistic journey has led her through ten years as a popular radio personality where she explored her love of music . . . and the next decade as an actor/director, including a summer at England’s Royal National Theatre where she studied with Sir Ian McKellan and other “British Masters.” And now, she has come full circle … back to her first love: painting. She has always admired watercolor artists and their tenacity. Her art has been influenced by painters like John Singer Sargent; Winslow Homer; Mary Whyte; Henry Caselli; Stephen Scott Young; and Georgia O’Keeffe, to name a few. Carmen has always treasured the creative “process,” the “getting there,” more than the arrival at a final product or performance. To that end, she is now honored to be sharing the adventure with the many “Maui Masters” who make the Valley Isle their home. She hopes her art reflects the “spirit” of the islands. As a 32 year resident of Haiku, on Maui’s north shore, Carmen’s art is an “almost kama’aina’s” reflection on the “island way of life.” She invites you to share in the experience.
