About Charlotte


Hi, I am Charlotte Hamilton. I am originally from England but have been living in Canada for the past 25 years.


I went to Art school in Mallorca, Spain and lived there for 6 years. This is where I found my love and sight for light and shadows.


Living in Canada means experiencing four very different Seasons, which I’m sure has influenced the use of colour in my work.


My biggest achievements are having been able to create an art career and do the one thing I love to do daily. Paint and teach.


I have been teaching for 15 years in schools and now I teach on a regular basis online and am grateful to everyone who joins my classes from all over the World. Seeing the change and growth in my students always fills my heart with joy.
