Inspired by the Art Deco movement and the stylized images of the time, Charlie strives to achieve this same two dimension effect. Pieces such as “Thea” and “Estelle” follow an earlier commission to produce an Art Deco inspired collection for a private home which was lovingly restored to the same period. This was a very constrained style of painting but the images reflected Charlie’s love of fashion and design and she found it was a genre she wanted to explore further, she sees it as a natural extension of her creative style.
