Pastel artist Carmen Zambrano was born in Peru and moved to the United States at the age of two. Carmen is now a native of Danbury, Connecticut and has been painting with pastels for the past twelve years. She uses pastels to illustrate and capture scenes from nature and the stories she reads. As a child, Carmen developed a deep appreciation for the beauty of the world around us and of the worlds created in stories. She received a BFA in Illustration from Western Connecticut State University and has been a part of the art community in Danbury from a very young age. She does a lot of painting commissions for private collections and donated paintings for Habitat for Humanity. She recently had a show that was well received at the Danbury City hall and won best in show for Illustration at the Fine Arts Show at the Danbury Fair Mall. Carmen is not only an illustrator but also a graphic designer. Her logo for the Danbury Public Schools can be seen throughout Danbury.
