I've watched Carmen's career soar as she devoted herself to serious projects and exhibitions. Along the way, it's been my pleasure to guide her when she needs it.
Carmen has been working on Chez Nous, a large installation for a number of years, which was to be installed in March of 2020 near the high-trafficked area of the Louvre in Paris. It happened just in the nick of time—hours before shelter in place orders were given for France. But she couldn't have predicted what would happen next.
I had to share this story with you. It speaks to the power of art and the fact that you, once you put your art out into the world, have no control over how it's perceived—over what it comes to mean to others.
Please enjoy my conversation with Carmen Mariscal.

"I think of you frequently when painting and thank my lucky stars that I worked my way through the Art Carer Success System and went from a sad, insecure artist who could not get into a group show to a confident one who is is invited to be in group and solo shows and even museum shows." - Susan McLaughlin
I can’t begin to tell you how much it means for me to read messages like this one from Susan. THIS is why I keep doing the work that I do after all of this time! So that I can be around long enough to see artists transform their work and their lives. To see them gain confidence in their purpose.
I’d love to work with you, too, in my Art Career Success System. This business training program is designed for serious artists who want to present themselves in the most professional light. It’s all on demand and you can begin immediately.
