Artist Profile -
Charmé Curtin has been fortunate to have been surrounded by artists all of her life. Her mother was a professional oil and watercolor artist and her father designed jewelry, when both were not working as Real Estate Brokers.
|Because of this, other professional artists were always visiting her family’s home and coaching Charmé on a broad variety of mediums. She settled on watercolor as her preferred medium.
While in high school, Charmé attended classes at the Laguna Art Colony in Laguna Beach, California. Her studies continued at Memphis College, Memphis Tennessee, and further at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. She has gained further education from notable artists such as Julian Bloom, Jim Burns, Gerald Spencer and Jan Schaffer in the watercolor medium. She has also studied oil painting under Lois Payne and Tamara Geddes.
|Almost every day Charmé can be found with a paintbrush in hand. Her favorite subjects are the simple things that she finds in everyday life around her. Charmé has experienced living in many states all over the country: Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Arizona, California and Nevada.
Charmé's artwork has been recognized by awards at various competitions and has also been published in the National Watercolor Society Catalog.
