She completed her BA (Hons) in Printed Textile Design from the University of Brighton and on completion was awarded a scholarship from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust to further her research at the Royal College of Art. After completing her MA, Charlotte was selected for TexPrint alongside 24 of the UK’s most promising graduating textile designers to exhibit her work in London and Premiere Vision, Paris. Having created art pieces and textile designs since her undergraduate days, Charlotte took the opportunity to set up a small freelance business, designing prints and products to a wealth of different brands including the National Trust, Alexander McQueen, Ted Baker, Weekday, H&M, Marks and Spencer, Ralph Lauren and Club Monaco. Her rich knowledge of traditional screen printing and dyeing techniques combined with new digital technologies led her to be awarded the digital innovation prize from Miroglio, a prestigious textile mill who she has since worked for. Charlotte worked for three years as a visiting lecturer on the Textile Innovation course at Loughborough University before relocating to Devon to take up her role at Arts University Plymouth. Charlotte has always found the balance of teaching and designing a harmonious relationship and enjoys the challenges and breakthrough moments experienced by students.
