Carmel Slater


Artist Statement

Carmel’s watercolours offer a welcome distraction from our busy lives. They invite us to stop, observe and admire enchanted habitats with playful king parrots swinging upside down, delicate yellow robins and after her recent trip to Thailand gentle elephants, cheeky gibbons and beautiful sun bears. Her vibrant works abundant with flowers and wildlife, are in the artist’s words, ‘a salute to Mother Nature.’After living in Wingello for four years and being so close to the 2020 bushfires in January her work looks to help raise awareness for threatened species such as the Glossy Black Cockatoo and others including koalas and native wildlife.Carmel started exhibiting her work last year, with her first sold out exhibition in Bungendore (March-May 2019). This is her second year in the Southern Highlands Arts Trail.
