ART IS MY THERAPY, MY MEDICATION, MY REFUGE.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
(1968 – present) VERDI was born into a military family at Fort Dix, New Jersey, and grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts. After graduating high school in 1987, Carmen joined the military before becoming a business owner in the early 90s. In 2006, he began to draw to cope with life's challenges, and in 2014 displayed his artwork to the public for the first time at a local art show in Nashua, NH. Since then, his unique drawing technique and style have helped him gain fans and collectors throughout New England and other parts of the states. His most proud moment was his appearance on NH Chronicle in 2021 on an episode called "Masterpieces in Pencil."
"I express my feelings through my art. My subject depends on what I feel at that time of creation. I can see a thousand subjects, but only one will make me feel. That's when I know that's the one. From there, the rest is up to my ideas and inspirations."
"My art is made the way I want it to be and no other way. I naturally add side-by-side pencil lines on cotton paper in a way that pleases me and shares my feelings with anyone who wants to look. Each line I put on the paper is like a paragraph in a novel for you to read. My art is my story."
