Biography


Why do I paint?
 
I happen to love paintings. Each one seems a small world, created in the mind and by the hand, of an individual.

I’d like to share my little worlds with you. Thanks for visiting!
 
—Charlotte

Cities describe humankind: we are diverse yet separated,  crowded yet alone, craving beauty yet creating squalor. The cauldron of the city holds it all, this fraught mixture of contradictions.
 
No one ever loved a city more than I during my years in San Francisco, first [...]
