About the Artist
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.
Family life intervened, but her love of drawing returned. Self development through Adult Education, and re-connecting with her life long ambition to make her passion for Art a career, she returned to Art in the 1990’s, with additional creative boosts from the St Ives School of Art & Newlyn Art School. Charlotte’s work was nominated and accepted to the first Cornwall Art Fair, St Ives in 2016, and again in 2017. The following year she exhibited in Launceston & Boscastle, and was accepted as a Member of the Camel Art Society. In 2019 she exhibited at the Wild Cornwall Exhibition, Truro.
Cornwall is her inspiration, it is Home. Charlotte’s love for the natural beauty of the county is depicted in her work. Created either in her studio in North Cornwall, or from plein air pastel sketches, Charlottes work captures and expresses the simple joys of the colours of Cornwall. Cornwall’s beauty is the lure for the county’s tourism industry, and this makes her aware of humans damage through over consumption to the environment. Creating art and respecting the environment leads to her ethos of creating original works, with prints limited to 5 or 10 only. The buyers connection with the piece is important to her, along with original art being affordable to all those who appreciate it. With growing interest and popularity, her joyful, beautiful work is selling nationally and internationally.
Bespoke (commission) orders are accepted.

I was born in Japan but instantly felt that Cornwall is my spiritual home. The landscape, the sky, the weather and the people all combine to make Cornwall a place I want to be. Back home in Japan I work with natural stone and grind it down into powered to use as a paint material. I see the amazing granite of Cornwall as a perfect material to use in my art.

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.
My painting is an expression of my love of the land here in West Penwith, a connection with the beauty and power of the landscape. The paintings are in oil paint on board or canvas, and are realistic & representational landscapes of West Cornwall, but not in an entirely photographic way; they are hyper-real, or more than real.
My work is compiled, I build layer after layer, sometimes taking areas back to where I started, reworking or allowing the beginnings to be exposed. Layers are often thin and my tools are basic. Some papers and canvas may go through the press, some are hand pressed, all are painted and repainted.

Greetings contemporary art fans, and welcome to the contemporary art world of (relatively) new (to us, anyway) and terribly exciting landscape artist, Alan Furneaux. A thoroughly modern artist who’s so good at what he does, a percentage of his unique designs have lent themselves to greetings card covers recently.
