I'm Charlotte, I currently live in a village in Nottingham with my family. I love all sorts of creative pursuits- knitting, crochet, painting, embroidery, drawing and painting to name a few. Drawing was my first love, and its been nice to get back to pen and paper (well, iPad) in the past couple of years.
I have chronic pain and osteoarthritis, so my ability to do most of the crafts I used to is limited. However, drawing on my iPad pro is an absolute joy and something I can easily pick up and put down as I want. I love to take inspiration from nature. Big cats and other wild cats are a great source of material to draw and paint.
I hope to produce more designs, both quirky and colourful, that can be used in interiors such as wallpaper and fabric. Stationary is another application for my designs in the future. I think they'd look great on phone cases too actually. The possibilities are endless.
I'm currently enrolled on Bonnie Christine's online Flourish course. Its a great source of support and inspiration from like minded people. There are lots of wonderful resources which have been helpful in getting me started. Austin Kleon's book, Show Your Work has also given me the push I needed to put my work on social media and create a website.
