Through her paintings, Charlotte explores and reveals new methods of sensation and perception of the human body. Through a relationship with colour and bold strokes, the aim is to transform flowing lines and delicate curves, into powerful blocks and piercing eyes. The use of simple colour palettes and abstract notions of painting draws you in to the relationship between the art and the artist. The exploration of shape and line through pen drawings and realistic portraits offers a stark contrast against the abstract features of the human body. These drawings offer Charlotte a perspective and understanding of the power of drawing the human body, and a subject that will always offer something new and interesting to study from.
Charlotte lives in the outskirts of Wiltshire with her husband. She graduated from the University of Reading with a Honours degree in Art and Psychology – and has since displayed artwork from London to Canada.
