I am Charlie and I am ‘Creative Expressionist’.
Come on a journey with me.
Please note that our website is under construction.
What I do:
I Create Sculptures – Wire Sculptures – made with Fencing Wire
But before wire, I made my very first creation – ‘Domaniq’, she was 100 hours of pure strain & pressure – I am legally blind so using pins & glass beads was sometimes a bit painful (pinning myself with the pins & loosing many beads to the floor. In the end I was more than happy with my creation.
I will always be the Extreme Expressionist to the end.
I have had MS for over 20 years & many a time I am in a wheelchair, using a cane being unable to walk, or walk properly, in hospital with a relapse or starting a new treatment.
My last new treatment was the reason why I chose to use wire as my new medium. I had a failed response to the new treatment & ended up contracting PCP, my immune system crashed & was stuck in a decompression room for 2 weeks. When finally, I was allowed to return home I progressively lost sleep that’s when I used my 22 hours of awake time to twist & bend wire. I picked up a roll of wire and started to twist, push, pull, turning into knots – figures appear, out of the wire & that’s when my ideas come into play.
The failed medical journey lasted 2 years, now I get a healthy 6-8 hours sleep, I still have problems with my health but I am happy that my art brings smiles to so many peoples faces.
I am the creator who finds the life & beauty in the twisted, stressed and beaten.
Everything is from the heart, every piece of paper, wire, wood, tile, wax, twine, clay, chisel, hammer, saw, scissors, lighter, knife, tweezers & paintbrush. All implements are used with respect & anything that can be used in or as art, can & will be used – with LOVE & finding a BEAUTY.
