“Charlotte worked with us on the tricky task of designing and painting four beehives and turned what seemed to be an impossible task into a very doable one, with national press coverage to show for it. Her painting was fantastic as was her professionalism; we look forward to working with her again in the future.”

Marni McArthur, Hove

“WOW!!! You are efficiency personified! Thanks so much, I can’t tell you how pleased I am with what you’ve done.” (private commissioned piece)

Sue Marshall, editor, Desang Magazine

“I always try to find a strong front cover image for the magazine, and the front cover is usually about the lead feature, so the illustrations for both are important. When researching this feature I wanted to find artwork with some ‘punch’ as well as some humour, if possible. I came across Charlotte’s work via the Open Houses in Brighton and remembered it. When it came time to do this story on diabetes, diet and education, some of her illustrations were perfect — fun, smart, colourful and had both people and food items in them. I think they have worked wonderfully, helping to make the feature fun as well as being informative.”

Ginevra, Managing Director, Italy

“I have seen your beautiful illustrations of Castello di Bibbione, they are amazing! I was wondering if I could publish them.”

Tania – io Gallery, Brighton

“Charlotte produces some great designs, lighthearted and colourful.
We are happy to have a selection of her work for sale in the gallery.”

Fanely Gouguet – Childrens Book Author, Luxembourg

“Charlotte has her own style and imaginary world, cheerful and charming. She is a delight to work with, always exploring different paths and technics to offer strong and innovative graphic creations. Her talents are varied and don’t stop there, as she also is a photographer and a DJ. “
