Hello there! I am from northern BC Canada. I have been an illustrator for 10+ years and went to art school in Belgium. My illustrations always have a whimsical trait to them and are usually done with watercolours and pencils although gouaches are my first love. They are warm and inviting to children, completing a story with strong colours and fine details. I have a lot of experience with custom paintings for clients and I am getting my first children’s book published this year.
I am very passionate and enthusiastic about my work and I make sure to communicate as much as possible with my clients to get a deep sense of their needs. I am also bilingual English-French. I can’t wait to work with you!

I really enjoyed working with Charlotte. She is extremely prompt with getting the designs back which is wonderful if you're in a hurry. She is patient and willing to adapt, which was necessary for me, a new author unsure of what I want.
