Portrait of a Fly, watercolor by Charlene Collins Freeman
Charlene Collins Freeman is a watercolorist, sketchbook addict, teacher and traveler.
"I have loved to create things with my hands as far back as I can remember. I have been a full time artist ever since I realized that I could actually create a life doing what I love. That took some time to learn.
I believe that through art and play adults and children alike are able to understand their world and to establish connections to different areas in their life. Through art we are better able to understand and appreciate the world around us."
After teaching for years at several art schools and local colleges, Charlene opened up Cloud 9 art school in Bothell, offering watercolor, drawing and sketchbook classes for adults, children and teens, as well as yearly international sketching workshops.
