Carmel Lim Torres

Carmel is a practicing artist and an art educator, with more than 15 years’ experience teaching at middle school, high school, and university levels. She earned a BFA in Sculpture with a distinction. She is a repatriated third culture kid having grown up in five different countries and an International Baccalaureate alumna. Carmel now lives in Manila and loves to share her passion for the process of making art and exploring the world. I also love ART! I love how the creative process can connect to pretty much everything in our lives and universe. I’m currently out of the classroom but still in the art studios with artists. I want to help build up everyone’s confidence in their awesomeness. I try to do this by listening to their stories, watching their process and learning together. Positivity, kindness and creativity are energy transferred to infinity and beyond.
