Meet the Artist

Hi, I’m Carmella, a jewelry designer and artist that is so proud to call Gallatin, TN home. I have been creating art in some form for most of my life, and feel very blessed to be able to now make art everyday. Libraries have always played an important role in my life, I have countless memories of being young and looking forward to the safe haven and peacefulness that was offered there. I could get lost in a book, painting pictures in my mind of what I was reading for days! I was so honored to be asked to share my work here at our beautiful Gallatin Library. Aren’t we all so lucky to have this place?! 

My work is inspired by nature, the little details of life, and flowers… always flowers! I have titled this collection “la joie de vivre” - The Joy of Living, because it includes so much of the joy I find in day to day life. From vases of flowers, cozy chairs & cups of tea, birds chirping, and the bees buzzing around me in the garden…. I hope these pieces will put a smile on your face, they were an absolute joy to create!
