We catch up with our Freelance Artist, Charlotte.
I am a freelance artist, mainly in charge of the design and making of the popular mosaic birds that go into the shop, I also help on projects and installs. The best thing about Art4Space is getting to be creative and how supportive everyone is to one another.
A typical day at Art4Space starts by opening up the studio and seeing what needs to be done, for me that’s mainly regarding the mosaic birds and finding unique pieces for them and coming up with designs.
Try and do something that brings you joy at least once a day, I find it helps to shift focus on the current situation, especially if you’re feeling a bit deflated in these uncertain times.
I tend to skip meals some days which is naughty of me, but my lunch usually consists of leftover dinner from night before can be anything from bolognaise to tuna pasta.
I’m working on a new batch of 20 birds for the Art4Space shop, also custom makes and few other projects at the studio, including some personal ones as well… So I’m quite busy!
As a mum of 3 it’s something I don’t get to do very much, but when I do, it’s just nice getting to sit and watch a film or series uninterrupted.
I’d like to shout out to myself, not something I’d ever do, but this year has been so defining for me on a whole, especially being a single parent in lockdown! So I guess I’d also shout out to all women and mothers everywhere (single or not); we go through a lot and we’re all doing great!
