Philosophy

“Art has no guidelines. Art has no rules. So I dig deep into my roots. I seek out inspiration from my travels and re-create the light from my memories. And that is how invention is born.”

-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 journey began in a bright barn in New Hampshire, just walking distance from the rocky shoreline. Now she is based in California, where she is a full time artist. She creates a wide range of work, constantly studying new techniques and subject matter. From oil painting to sculpting, large scale murals to small handwritten poems, her mission is to capture light and recreate the essence of her ever-changing environment.
