Charlotte was born in the great naval city of
Plymouth in 1973 and grew up with a natural fascination for the sea.
After training to be an illustrator at the University of Derby and
Hereford College of Art, her love of coastal life drew her to
Scotland where she was invited to become Artist in Residence at a
rural centre for the arts. Charlotte says: “The moment when I first
knew I wanted to be a professional artist was when I was asked to
produce some work for a refuge centre for women who had suffered
domestic violence, and I created a series of pieces reflecting on
acceptance and harmony. The whole experience of liaising with the
refuge and seeing people's response to the finished images was
immensely rewarding and inspiring, and proved to me that art really
can make a difference.” Since becoming a professional artist
Charlotte has showcased her work throughout the South of England and
has enjoyed numerous successful exhibitions in London, York,
Inverness, Galloway and Dallas, Texas.
