Born in 1935, Charlotte studied at the Royal Academy Schools under Henry Rushbury and Albert Richardson who proved a great influence and encouraged her to follow her own interest in architectural drawings. Whilst a student she was awarded the Silver Medal for drawing and commissions started to come in. The most important was for the engineers constructing the Shell Centre in the late 1950’s for whom she produced sixteen large drawings as the project developed, starting with the foundations and continuing during the years it took to complete. Charlotte has exhibited widely in group exhibitions, and is a member of the Royal Watercolour Society and New English Art Club where she has served as Keeper since 1989. Her many awards have included the de Laszlo Medal and the Lord Mayor’s Art Award.
