“Charlie ran a Working With Canvas workshop for a group of our service-users. It was an easy workshop to set up as Charlie sorted out most of the practicalities for us, and gave us clear instructions in relation to the things she would need from us, to make the workshop run smoothly.
The workshops took place over 2 mornings and those that attended really got a great deal from them, and ended up with pieces of work that they were proud of. Charlie’s patience and the time she devoted to each individual was particularly noteworthy. When people were struggling for ideas she helped to guide them towards a theme that they could relate to, rather than choosing for them; so that people ended up with pieces of work that they felt were their own creation.
Everyone who participated commented on how much they had enjoyed the days and how much they had valued her expertise along with her calm and gentle style of encouragement”
Dr Jayne Eaton, Clinical Psychologist and Manager of the Bipolar Service (BSMHFT)
“After searching unsuccessfully for some artwork for my dining room, I was recommended to Charlie. She came out to see me at my home and discussed in full my colour scheme and the design of artwork I required. I commissioned Charlie to carry out the work and when they were completed she delivered the completed canvasses to us. The finished artwork was absolutely perfect, Charlie had captured exactly what I wanted in the design and colour and the standard of the paintings was above and beyond my imagination. Charlie has an incredible gift, her creativity is inspirational. She is an amazing artist. “
