"Happily painting the beauty and history of the Northwest.

Many of the most joyful moments in my life are creative ones.  Art forces me to look and look again at a scene.  It becomes an indelible memory. 

Then I try to paint from the heart a  representation of that reality I've observed feeling the sense of  color, texture, and  space.  This is the true delight of art for me."

Charli moved to Gig Harbor, WA in 2004 and being a former potter and wood carver met friends in the local art scene who prompted her to delve into painting. She was drawn originally to the wonderful transparency and fluidity of watercolor. She since has developed interest in acrylics and mixed media and loves to sketch her surroundings in pen, ink and watercolor.

Charli has been in many shows including being juried into the Maritime show and the PAL international show. She currently serves as president of the Peninsula Art League and is a member of the Tacoma Urban Sketchers.
