Influenced by magic realism among numerous other things, I began to teach myself to paint before attending college in London. I create a kind of holistic patchwork of stories often through docufiction; the aim being to eventually develop a unique interpretation of life and the world.
Charlotte was born in the 1970s in Cornwall, to a truly Cornish family, with her roots in the County traceable back to the mid 1600’s. Always creative from a young age, she spent her childhood learning about nature, watching and exploring local freshwater rivers, woodland, moorland and coastal environments.
Christine Brunnock was raised in St Ives, Cornwall. She is based in St Ives today where she is constantly inspired by the Cornish landscape. Largely self-taught, her work is expressive and atmospheric, communicating a range of emotions that are reflected by the elements and environment. Christine's work has been collected internationally and she exhibits regularly. She was shortlisted for The Evening Standard Art Prize in London and is a member of The National Acrylic Painters' Association.

I am a so called ‘self-taught’ artist and tend to paint according to my mood. My paintings consist mainly of ‘little people’ having a good time. I had, as a child, many a day out with my parents and in a lot of my paintings I try and reflect the good times I had. Walks by the river, fun in the snow, days on the beach etc.
