“Whether it be painting, drawing or sculpting, making art is a life long task, a strange and poetic meditation, that keeps me driven to capture life and light...” – Charly

Charly earned a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute. In addition, she studied and worked as an Intern in Greece and Italy for over three years, where she was exposed to ancient cultures, while simultaneously experiencing contemporary life. Her studio is located in a bright barn in New Hampshire, just walking distance from the rocky shoreline. She creates a wide range of work, constantly practicing new techniques and mediums. Inspired by the vast space of the horizon and soothed by the light after a rainstorm, she is able to depict the visual impressions of her ever-changing surroundings and recreates the essence of her environment.
