Charlotte Bird – Artists Profile
Fairytale - A True Story


Charlotte Bird was born in Suffolk, England; in 1958.Her family was stationed there with her Father who was in the R.A.F. Her Father often read fairy stories and nursery rhymes to her before bed and it is to these that she owes her love of the little folk. She left Suffolk when she was five and the family came to live in Wallasey, near Liverpool, England. She has since moved to the beautiful Glenwherry Valley in Co Antrim,noy far from the the renowned dark hedges and Slemish mountain.
Charlotte started photography at the age of seven. Her Father was a keen photographer and printer and the family set up a darkroom in the cellar of the house. Although Charlotte had dabbled in photography in her early years, it wasn’t until her two children had grown up that she took it up seriously. After attending the local college, Charlotte finished with a diploma in photography, qualifying with seven distinctions. Enchanted by the work of the mid Victorian’s, especially the fairy tales and poetry of the time, she developed a style that was influenced by these.
She was also inspired by the books called ’The Borrowers’ A tale about little people who lived under the floor in a house and came out to borrow things from the inhabitants. She made her little folk into fairies and developed the series ‘Common house fairies’
Her work has proved popular with all age groups, which goes to show, there is a child, still in all of us, and occasionally they like to come out and play.

Hi Folks,
I've just re-arranged my Etsy shop and reduced the prices,which had shot up after the Brexit vote.. when the pound dropped in value against the $. Etsy automatically makes changes between the $ and £. which resulted in a sharp increase in my prices.
Anyway I had to go through every listing 200+ and change the price on every one.It has taken 2 days.
I have made it simpler now, with a drop down menu for every picture.
So you can choose either an Unmounted Print, a mounted print -
( These are both an overall size of 12"x 16" they are both hand signed by myself and the mounted version, has a hand written title rather than I printed one, as with the unmounted print. Both come with a backboard and are wrapped in a crystal clear bag, they also have an artists profile in the back.These would need to be framed. We can frame them for you if you like. Just click 'ASK A QUESTION in my etsy shop..if you would like a framed picture or a large stretched canvas. All my pictures are available on all products.)

The Plaques come in two sizes. 10" x 7" and 16" x 12".
The picture is heat pressed onto a cream painted plaque, which is then given a oil painted effect varnish. This protects the surface too and it can be wiped with a damp cloth. Both Plaques are ready to hang from a silk cord.
The plaques come with a certificate on the back, which is hand signed...both the title and signature by myself.
Happy Shopping
