Hi I'm Charlotte.
Welcome to the shop! I work out of my home in the country, in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of Central New York, an area known for its beautiful lakes and gorges. For as long as I can remember, I've loved and made art. Like Harold from "Harold and the Purple Crayon" (a favorite childhood book) I've always seen art as a good tool for navigating life. For the past 17 years, I've taught art in a middle school, where having a sense of humor, and being a little "off center" were job requisites.
During those years, I've tried to balance teaching with my other loves: my family, painting, jewelry making, running, making music, travel, gardening, baking, and more. (Lest that sounds too holy... I've become hooked on a reality dancing show, and I windowshop aimlessly between appointments.) Recently, I retired from teaching, and I'm thrilled to have the time…
