Born 1996 in Nataf, Israel, to Anne Ben-Or and Gal Ben-Or, Carmel has always been surrounded by all kinds of art and disciplines ever since childhood.
Through her mother who is a painter, brother who is a musician, and an artistic community of friends made up of photographers, actors, dancers, and musicians alike, Carmel formed her aesthetic sensibility.
Between the years 2018-2020, Carmel was a full-time student at the Jerusalem Studio School, and studied under the guidance of Yedidya Hirshberg and Deborah Sebaoun.
In the summer of 2018 Carmel joined the Jerusalem Studio School's summer programs in Italy under the guidance of Israel Hirshberg, Susannah Phillips and Kurt Knobelsdorf.
In addition, from 2017 until 2021, Carmel also studied with the sculptor Avner Levinson, in "Atelier Art School" in Tel-Aviv.
