Meet the Author

Although Charlotte has a background in academic psychology, she has worked with art and cloth most of her life as a dyer, weaver, clothing designer, knitter, and quilter. Passion for the fiber arts steered her toward working full time in art, setting aside her academic career. Widely exhibited and collected, her work has appeared in many books and magazines. After many years working principally as a weaver of tapestries, she began to make quilts and currently concentrates on creating digital imagery printed on fabric and assembled into quilt art. When not working in the digital darkroom in her sunny quilting studio, she can be found knitting and listening to classical music, hiking in the mountains with her camera, sitting in the audience at an opera performance, or trying to tame her messy, leafy garden. Her experience as an artist-in-residence in Rocky Mountain National Park remains a strong influence.
