Charlotte Giblin is an established artist and copywriter based in Whitianga, best known for her whimsical “Big Skies” paintings which chronicle her adventures as she wanders through the New Zealand landscape. Charlotte’s ability to draw and paint in a wide variety of styles – from simple cartoons to representational realism – gives her work a versatile and competitive edge.
Born in Liverpool, England in 1975, Charlotte has always been involved with a broad range of creative and artistic disciplines. She had an academic art education in the UK which was grounded in traditional drawing and painting techniques and went on to complete a BA(Hons) in Ceramics before running her own business for 10 years.
