Background

After studying art at Reading University under Richard Wilson,
Ron Haseldon and Rose Finn-Kelcey, Charlie taught art for
three years and then moved abroad in 1994 for several years to
live in Prague, Lisbon, and London, where he worked as an artist,
designer, art director and photographer. In 2004 Charlie moved to
Montpellier, France where he lives with his partner Patricia and
their three boys, Jules, Blaise and Luigi. His switch to freelance
status as a designer and photographer, since moving to France,
has enabled him to focus more on his work as a practising studio artist.
