About Charlotte

Charlotte was born a military brat. The family lived on 4 continents while she was growing up. She became aware of light and landscape at an early age. The passion for place led her to become an artist.

Currently Charlotte and her husband live near Yosemite National Park. Her husband is a landscape photographer who has become interested in photographing birds as well. They are drawn to the foothills and the Sierra for landscape subjects.

Charlotte paints primarily with pastels. Most people don't know that pastels are more archival than oils. She does paint with oils as well. When she's not painting she enjoys her garden, dogs, knitting and traveling.
