User experience researcher by day, artist by night. Carmen Peters uses her curiosity and obsessions of science, nature, and technology as inspirations for her art. 

You can witness the dreamiest, whimsical-est sea critters around on Carmen's Instagram (@carmiepeters) and to take home original watercolours and artsy merch, check out Waterlight Studios.
