Curriculum Vitae

Ann Charlott was born in 1974. She has scandinavian roots coming from the very north of Norway and the danish island Fyn.

After living and studying in Copenhagen and travelling parts of the world, Ann Charlott moved to the small danish island Bornholm in 2008 with her family. This is now her home and base for the making of visual art and the work with sustainable projects.

Spontanity, intuition, experimentation and making by doing is essential when Ann Charlott creates visual art. Ann Charlott finds her inspiration in daily live, combining colours and patterns into a composition formed on canvas or other textile material. The stories in her art starts in the meeting with the viewer.

Ann Charlott also focus on sustainable living in rural areas when working with designprojects, working together with local, national and international partners and designing and experimenting with new, and old ways to sustainable living in rural areas.
