About Carmen

Carmen Martinez Jover was born in England and from the age of 10 moved to Mexico City. She started as a bilingual secretary and then went on to being a primary teacher. Her creativity took her to study fashion design and published together with her sister Rosemary, a children’s magazine called “Orny”.

Carmen’s painting started as a mean to express the emotions she was going through. She expressed them through chairs, why chairs?… all she wanted was a family and another chair at her table. Realising that her paintings helped others couple with their infertility emotions she wrote her biography “I want to have a child, whatever it takes”.

Carmen strongly believes that every child has the right to understand how they were conceived so with her sister, Rosemary, they have written stories for children to explain all these new forms of conception that exist nowadays.

Through her unique style of painting chairs, Carmen has managed to portray the lives of many individuals and families. It is as if each painting has its own life and can be found in homes and clinics around the world.

As Director of the Mexican Infertility Association, an NGO that supports couples having problems in conceiving. Together with Sandra de la Garza, has given support to couples throughout Mexico and Latin America. Carmen has given lectures in India, Turkey, Spain, Chile, Brazil, USA & Mexico.

Carmen has always had deeply innate passion for helping others and has lead her to study hypnosis, Reiki and Theta healing.
