Charlotte Roffe-Silvester inherited a love of drawing from her grandmother, the portrait painter, Hilda Kidman. Charlotte studied textile design at the Central School of Art and Design in London, and then went on to work in the field of furnishing prints. Now, having brought up six children and after numerous house moves, she is re-establishing herself in the Art World.

Charlotte enjoys painting animals, flowers and fruit. She works mainly in watercolour and gouache on paper and small pieces of furniture or trays. She takes on commissions to mark a special occasion, such as a wedding gift,or paint a favourite pet, and has also produced personalised Christmas cards. Please discuss your requirements with Charlotte, particularly if you would like a picture of your dog or yourselves.
