Charlotte showed her interest in painting at the early age of 5 and has since then exhibited her work in several galleries and art fairs from the late 90s to the present day. She attended Bryn Mawr Preparatory School during her formative years and later, in 1998, she earned her BFA in Painting and Art History from The College of Santa Fe in New Mexico. Her career as an artist has taken her all across the country, having studios in Santa Fe, the Hamptons, NYC, and Florida at various points in her career. She has exhibited alongside some of the most prominent artists, including Chagall, Picasso, Miro, Banksy, Harif Guzman, John Codling, Shepard Fairey, and Mr. Brainwash. Charlotte spends her time creating vibrant abstract large-scale oil paintings that are now a part of numerous collections and have dedicated collectors all over the country and world. Her artwork is owned by well-known personalities such as Robin Williams, Tommy Hilfiger, Christie Brinkley, and Huey Lewis. Charlotte draws inspiration for her work from travel, nature, music, and social issues - particularly, music before 1990, trees, climate, and animal rights issues. Her heavy use of thick oil paint gives her artwork a sculptural and mosaic quality that is unmistakably hers.
