Biography:

“The Australian coast doesn’t just inspire my art, it becomes a part of it”. 

 

Born in Melbourne, Charles developed a passion for art during his school years and went on to gain qualifications in engineering and graphic design. Charles’ work is a reflection and representation of his love of the sea, adventure and travel.

Charles hikes, dives and explores the most rugged and remote coastlines of the east coast of Australia, travelling as far as Cape York, where he charters light aircraft to give him access to the most isolated beaches.

He selects materials that are shaped by the harsh elements of the Australian environment to use in his artworks. Washed-up driftwood, flotsam and jetsam found by chance on a secluded beach that survives a journey across vast oceans. Corrugated iron and other salvaged building materials, scorched by sun and hammered by storms.
