"I am a woman living here in this time and this is what I explore and share through my art. This is not a feminist manifesto, but rather my personal journey of understanding. Drawing on emotional experience combined with social observation, I delve deeply and lightly into concepts such as love, relationships, grief and joy. From symbolism to deconstruction each work is a narrative, an exploration of something on my mind. And so with each stroke I seek to soften and reharmonise, inviting viewers to join me in this introspective exploration - an unravelling of life's complexities and beauties."

Charlotte Marie Isbell is a contemporary expressionist artist from Sydney, Australia, living and painting in Madison, Alabama. Working predominantly with oils, her work is inspired by her own life, moved by the intricacies of being a woman she explores the essence of self and her natural desire to create.

Although originally more impressionistically focused, Charlotte has evolved into a curious artist whose work now pushes the boundaries of color, metaphor and movement. Exploring the intersection of person, mind and place, her work taps into universal emotional experiences. Her pieces are boldy emotional yet soothing and approachable, driven by her innate desire to find harmony and balance.

 

Predominantly a self-taught painter, Charlotte’s art influences include a twelve year education in classical piano, more than a decade working in the Australian design industry, time studying in France, and through the schooling of abstract artists Nicholas Wilton and Noula Diamantopoulos. 

Since her debut show in 2017, she has had the privilege of solo exhibits and gallery representation in Colorado and Alabama, published work in children's books, has art now represented by Anthropologie, and has work housed in many private and corporate spaces in Australia and America.
