Charlie French is an American painter, who has always loved art, both creating it and experiencing it: “painting feels great!”
For many years Charlie has painted almost daily. He has taken assorted art courses in London and worked with art tutors in the US and the UK to continue his professional development.
Currently Charlie is focused on creating abstract art. While he primarily uses acrylic paint on canvas, Charlie has been refining his use of spray-paint, scraping and layering, to add texture and dimension to his work. His use of colours, shapes and forms are meaningful to Charlie. They reflect his mood, his imagination and his unique interpretation of the world around him. When a canvas is complete, Charlie in insistent: “that’s it — perfect.”
Charlie’s art is inspired by objects he loves, and particularly by the beauty and force of nature. Checking his weather app daily, Charlie is thrilled to coincide a painting session with a rainstorm, a thunderstorm, a hail storm, a snow storm, and on occasion a lovely sunset.
In addition to Heart & Sold, Charlie sells his original artworks and stays in touch with his admirers via his website: www.justcharliefrench.org.
