a sweet day with carmen
carmen torbus is a creative fireball i've wanted to meet from the moment our paths crossed a few years ago. yesterday i got my wish! life brought her to kansas, and i got to rummage around in her imagination in person for an entire afternoon! we went to zen zero downtown for lunch, took a tour through the wonder fair art gallery and finished off the afternoon at pink box bake shop where we inhaled pastries and let the conversation drift on a thousand threads about art and life. if you haven't met carmen before, you'll love the verve and vitality of her world! her mind is forever spinning with spicy ideas, she always has something colorful baking in her art studio, and she's currently working on her first book, The Artist Unique, to be published next spring - a technique based guide to help others discover their creative groove and their own signature style. she is one of the most encouraging and supportive people i've met in the artist community and it was a thrill to finally meet her. what a delight of a day! thank you carmen!
