Charmaine is an emerging WA artist with a background in graphic design which has shaped her approach to sculpture and painting. She graduated from NMTAFE in 2016 with an Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts and presently works from a studio in Artsource, Fremantle.  

Her work explores the use of geometry, optical effects and repetition and the interplay between the rhythmic elements and underlying grid structure. She finds this repetitive process calming and meditative. Her hand-built sculptures have a strong architectural presence. They are made of white stoneware clay that is bisque fired, giving the forms an organic tactile finish.
