Carmel Jenkin

I am a figurative artist from Melbourne, Australia, who specialises in the female form. I paint and draw essentially nudes using a variety of media: oil, acrylic, ink and charcoal.

My work references various personal events and episodes that have shaped my own connection to my body – a journey of self-awareness that hasn't been an easy one. I am forever obsessed with the capacity of the human body to tell a story through line, shape, texture and shade.
