The artist was born and raised amidst the Rocky Mountains of northwestern Wyoming. After attending college in Oregon and Texas then pursuing a career in California and Virginia, in 2010 she returned to the western mountains. While in Virginia, she became interested in fused and cast glass and spent 23 years attending classes at the Corning Glass Studio, Pilchuck and other artists’ studios and participating in local and regional exhibitions. After moving to Taos, Charlotte continued her glass art and explored fiber arts. She has been weaving glass beads and wire creating baskets since 2013 that sing in the sunlight and dance to the light of a candle.
