Charlotte's inspiration for her work comes directly from how she interprets the natural world, especially animals, and she is particularly well known for her ongoing series of Indian street cows. Since she can remember, Charlotte has been drawn to these majestic creatures that seem to take so little from the planet and give so much. She works closely with charities to raise funds to better their welfare. In her recent collaborations she has helped to raise awareness of the plight suffered by cows due to plastic ingestion and illegal trafficking for slaughter. These rescued cows are now living in Gaushalas(Cow sanctuaries). During Charlotte's trips to India she visits these Gaushalas and photographs the cows which later become the subjects of her works.
More recent series of paintings (as well as screen prints) have been inspired by feathered animals, especially runner ducks but also hares, elephants, dogs and the occasional monkey or toucan!
Charlotte's paintings are embellished with layers of gold print giving them a sense of opulence and unique appeal. Some of her creations are also available as high quality giclee prints which are released as limited editions.
Her screenprints focus on feathered animals and are all one-offs or very small editions.
Away from the studio, Charlotte often works in public art projects involving schools, the local community and public spaces.
Her latest school project is a vibrant and impressive mosaiced ‘Welcome Sign’ created with Year six primary schoolchildren to grace the new building at Ladbroke JMI school in Potters bar.
