Charlotte has dual nationality between France and Britain and is bilingual. Having grown up between Paris and within an hour of London Charlotte was taken to art galleries and exhibitions from an early age, by her French Grandmother and Mother. Art, philosophy, literature, politics, music and fashion were passions within the family and promoted with great importance. Now Charlotte lives on the South Coast in the vibrant city of Portsmouth with her husband and 3 cats, where she works from home in her office and studio.
Charlotte’s education in art started early at her Montessori nursery school. Pursuing art all the way to college but found the constraints of being “taught art” limiting and turned to more academic subjects such as philosophy and psychology whilst learning photography. Returning to education in 2006 Charlotte did a diploma in fine art (painting and drawing) and is now in her last year of her BA (Honours) Philosophy and Psychological Studies degree and has taken creative writing for extra credit. With this she hopes to create online courses for creative therapies as well as writing her own books.
For Charlotte receiving art therapy taught her more about art than any lesson or teacher. “Art is fluid and creates energy which can be felt, art is not only visual”. Elitism and ego are negativities Charlotte avoids in the art world.
