Charlotte Lees: Art is my passion. I have been creating art for over 25 years and am continually inspired by my environment . I find excitement in projects that challenge me to create new images. As an artist, my desire is to encourage people to interact with the artwork – intellectually, emotionally and physically. Art should enrich lives as well as beautify the area. I have successfully completed commissions in stone, stainless steel, aluminum, bronze and wood. I enjoy the freedom of developing concepts without material restraint. Content is important in my work and I strive to present a unique view of my surroundings. I am constantly trying to expand my artistic vocabulary by exploring my work through “fresh eyes” and look forward to the challenge of creating new sculptural ideas.
