The Story of
Charmaine is an illustrator and designer based in the UK. Her work is inspired by nature.
She always knew she wanted to be an artist when she grows up; ever since she was 3 years old. At the age of 11 she began investigating websites and developed her first portfolio page, only, she didn't have a host for it so she found an alternative. Deviant Art. And by the age of 13, she was drawing like crazy!
When she was 16, she decided to officially become a web designer so she could build a portfolio online and pursue a career while drawing on the side. She loved drawing and creating new paintings but eventually fell into the trap of comparing her work to others and constant negative self-talk that almost crushed her love of drawing.
After 8 years of little to no drawing, and finally realised how to draw without being so critical of her own work and her passion for art and illustration came back stronger than ever!
