Charlotte Baynes

Charlotte Baynes Portrait artist of the year series 2017 and 2018

Charlotte likes to experiment with oils, acrylics, graphite, charcoal, fabrics and pastels. Her art is largely representative, comprising several portraits. She also creates monoprints, usually with thinned oil paint on glass. Often she uses intense colours, at times abandoning her brush in favour of lavish injections of paint.

Despite these seemingly random acts, she is concerned with precision and emotion, as well as a desire to create a genuine response to her subject. People she connects with, her Burmese/British heritage, the environment, music and Flamenco dance all have a huge influence on her work.

She has exhibited several times at The Mall Galleries, London and in artistic hubs such as Barcelona, Argentina, Manchester, and New York. She has most recently exhibited at Touchstones Gallery, Rochdale, where her work hung proudly alongside works by David Hockney and Andy Warhol.
