Charlotte Williams is a highly regarded British Wildlife Artist who is predominantly self-taught. Her love of animals and of the wild has been a life long passion - she started drawing animal portraits for others when she was just 10 years old! After school was over, she left for Africa and spent several years working out in the bush. Being completely immersed in nature, when not working, she would spend hours just walking, observing and drawing.
On her return, Charlotte carried on with her art in Brighton and was a finalist for Best Sussex Artist, had several successful shows in Brighton and London and sold her entire portfolio to a collector. Her passion for conservation is also paramount and her drawing of Cecil the Lion, which gained national press coverage and worldwide admiration was auctioned to raise funds against poaching and she continues to be a huge supporter of many conservation efforts.
With every piece of work Charlotte sets out to capture what is behind the eyes of each of her subjects. Her aim is for you to feel them, to know them. Her knowledge and love for these animals shines in every one of her meticulous drawings and paintings.
"I have drawn for as long as I can remember. I am a perfectionist and cant put my tools down until I know my paintings would breathe if they could!"
