Charlotte has been painting in Kern County for 28 years. In 2008 she received the Beautiful Bakersfield Award in the Arts Individual category and she was nominated again in 2018.
Most of the time she paints plein air (on location). In the summer of 2018, she painted for three weeks in France. The Arts Council of Kern exhibited these paintings last September, her second show there.
She has been honored to name her two primary collectors: former Mayor of Bakersfield Harvey Hall and Or. Jung of Centennial Medical Group. Her work was shown at the mayor's office for many years, and her Iconic Buildings of Bakersfield Collection is currently on display at the Centennial Medical Group.
Charlotte is also an award-winning art educator. She has taught at Vista East Continuation High School and Liberty High School for a total of twenty years. She's now in her eighth year of teaching at Valley Oaks Charter School. Charlotte also teaches in the after school program here at the Bakersfield Arts Center.
