After achieving a BA (1st Class Hons) in Ceramics with Print at Camberwell College of Art Charlotte took up a Junior Fellowship in Ceramics at Cardiff returning to London in 1980. Working with plaster, wood and concrete Charlotte continued to explore architectural forms in sculpture exhibiting at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, the Minories, Colchester and at Acre Lane Studios, London.
A period out of the studio working in arts administration included work for the Arts Council at the Hayward and Serpentine Galleries and at Edward Totah Gallery. Charlotte then made printmaking her principal art practice working at Artichoke Print Studio and taking a PGCE at Goldsmiths College.
Returning to her home county of Devon in 2003 Charlotte lectured at Plymouth College of Art until 2011 also working for the University of the Arts London as a lead Moderator. She then took an MA in Contemporary Art Practice at Plymouth University.
Charlotte works in Devon predominantly using drawing and printmaking to interpret her themes. The work makes associations between plants and natural ephemera found at locations of social history interest on Dartmoor. The images have a melancholic dark presence. The plants used are at the end of their natural life and the nests and lichens in recent series are remnants found discarded on the ground where other activities have taken place in another age. There are influences of the study of museum herbaria collections reflecting the Victorian fascination for natural history. At the same time that age of great advances in industrial manufacture left its scars across the landscape these utilitarian paths and blemishes trace a social history.
Charlotte has continued to exhibit throughout her career in solo and group exhibitions recently at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and Fringe Arts Bath. In 2018 Charlotte became an Academician at the RWA Bristol where she now sits on the Council as Hon. Secretary.
