Charlotte Hamm Flowers
Charlotte Flowers grew up in an “art” family, and was surrounded by art from an early age. She quotes, “I will always remember my father’s advice, When creating art, there are no mistakes! Embrace what is happening, though it may not be your original plan.” I have worked in numerous mediums through the years, focusing on oil painting, soft pastel, and mosaic. Though my favorite theme has been the figure, I am delving into more abstraction. Currently I am finding delight by combining mediums - oil, acrylic, water color, ink, pastel, graphite and charcoal onto paper, canvas and board. Creating art with Multi Media is an intriguing adventure! Presently I am combining words into my art, sometimes loosely defined. I hope to engage the viewer, as they ponder their own interpretations of words.
