Charlotte Atkinson [Biography]

Charlotte Atkinson

Charlotte was born in the great naval city of Plymouth in 1973 and grew up with a natural fascination for the sea.

After training to be an illustrator at the University of Derby and Hereford College of Art, her love of coastal life drew her to Scotland where she was invited to become Artist in Residence at a rural centre for the arts. Charlotte says: “The moment when I first knew I wanted to be a professional artist was when I was asked to produce some work for a refuge centre for women who had suffered domestic violence, and I created a series of pieces reflecting on acceptance and harmony. The whole experience of liaising with the refuge and seeing people's response to the finished images was immensely rewarding and inspiring, and proved to me that art really can make a difference.” Since becoming a professional artist Charlotte has showcased her work throughout the South of England and has enjoyed numerous successful exhibitions in London, York, Inverness, Galloway and Dallas, Texas.

Following her success at the Fine Art Trade Guilds Awards in 2000, where she was awarded the prestigious title of 'Artist Exhibition Winner', her work attracted a great deal of attention leading to the publication of her first collection of Limited Editions, which sold out in a matter of weeks.

Since then her reputation has gone from strength to strength, and her Original Paintings, Limited Edition Prints, Sculptures and Glassware have quickly achieved the status of collector’s items.
