' A simple story about simple art born of the heart'.

Charlotte Phillips is a self-taught artist who has been married for 33 years and has 2 grown daughters. Her oldest daughter, Natalie, is second assistant cinematographer in Los Angels and her youngest daughter, Mary Kathryn is a film major at Alabama. Charlotte recently moved from her hometown of Birmingham Alabama to Little Rock Arkansas.

From a young child Charlotte loved to draw however she lacked confidence to pursue her dreams of becoming an artist so she majored in Social Work instead. Later she went back to graduate school to become a teacher and it is while teaching second grade that her desires for art began to resurface. Several years later she took a local drawing class and from there she taught herself to paint.

Her art is sold locally and internationally through her Etsy shop and through Fine Art America as well as through local art shows.

Charlotte believes her art is a part of her healing journey to find the deepest and purest parts of herself that she calls the inner child. Two of her favorite quotes are by Pablo Picasso, 'Every child is an artist. problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.' and 'It takes a very long time to become young.”

One of the most significant gifts I hope to pass along through my art is to remember to enjoy the powerful transforming essence of play. Through play I believe we are able to open up and allow the creative inspiration to flow through us. I think this famous quote by George Bernard Shaw sums it up, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”

Through the heart of the child within, I believe we can see the whole world as One.
