She is a cross-disciplinary artist whose practice encompasses performance, filmmaking and fine arts.
Charlotte initially trained as a ballet dancer. She then studied communication (MA – Edhec, Fr), art history (MA – Courtauld, University of London, UK) and performance (MA – Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, UK). She has continuously worked with different forms of visual expression as an artist, mostly sculpture (bronze, resin, body adornments/jewellery), performance (dance, music, theatre), filmmaking and photography.
