Charlotte Edey is an illustrator working across print, tapestries and ceramics. Softly surreal, the themes of identity and balance are explored within fluid and impossible spaces. Drawing on modernist architecture and vastly arid landscapes, the scenes are punctuated with touches of lush, organic idyll and miniature figures. This use of scale and visual contrasts explores the delicate and precarious nature of equilibrium.

Following her Foundation year at Chelsea School of Art in 2011, her work has been exhibited across the UK at venues including The Oxo Tower, Somerset House & The Arnolfini alongside galleries across the USA, Russia and Europe. Charlotte was recently showcased as part of the Great Women Artists: Women on Instagram exhibition at Mother London and selected for the Artist of The Day 2018 exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Mayfair.
