Charlotte Strauss is a contemporary realism painter working mostly in oils.  She is a Colorado native currently living and working in Lakewood, Colorado.
As a child Charlotte spent most of her free time drawing, painting or doing arts and crafts projects.  She was constantly searching for ways to express her artistic voice.  When Charlotte was 11 her parents enrolled her in an oil painting class and she was immediately hooked.  By the age of 13 she was entering competitions and winning awards for her oil paintings.  Charlotte continued painting through her teenage years.  She was an art major at the University of Colorado and later studied at the Bergman School of Art.  She has been an active member of the Art Students League of Denver for many years and it has been very instrumental in her artistic growth.  Many influences have contributed to her developing  her own personal style.  She has studied with Quang Ho, Kim English, Rob Gratio, Jane Jones, R.S. Riddick and John Lencinki.  Charlotte enjoys finding ordinary objects and arranging and rendering them to give them a special personality.  She also finds joy painting the inherent beauty in flowers and people.  Her vivid colors and attention to detail are her trademarks.
"I love working in oils because of the depth and richness of color that can be achieved.  I build my paintings with layers of color until I feel I have captured the essence of the subjects.  I enjoy the creative process and every work is a new adventure and learning experience."
Charlotte is a member of the International Guild of Realism.  Her work has been displayed at many national and international venues, earned several "Best of Show" awards, and is widely collected.
