Lo­ca­tion: Eng­land Web: www.cre­ber­ Email: cre­ber­ ME DIA: Pho­to­shop De­spite aban­don­ing acrylics and watercolours in favour of dig­i­tal paint­ing, Char­lotte is still keen to give her images a tra­di­tional flavour. “I like to pre­serve a tra­di­tional look to my paint­ings and I’m re­ally in­spired by artists like Craig Mullins and Donato Gian­cola, who marry fan­tasy and re­al­ism,” she says.

Char­lotte’s process for cre­at­ing images has also changed as she’s grown as an artist, from planned to more free-form and nat­u­ral. “My paint­ing process is or­ganic,” she says. “A lot of my art­work changes dramatically in progress so I don’t usu­ally make base sketches at all any­more – de­spite hav­ing sketch­books full of un­used ideas and thumb­nails.”

1 From the Balc ony “This was my first ma­jor dig­i­tal il­lus­tra­tion and it made me fall in love with the medium straight away. I wanted to fo­cus on sto­ry­telling and nar­ra­tive in this im­age, and make it dra­matic.”


Depths “This was in­spired by the Peter Pan and siren leg­end, in which mer­maids en­cir­cle a young girl who’s been made to walk the plank. They’re cu­ri­ous and danger­ous, and don’t help the hu­man to sur­vive, but in­stead fol­low her to the depths be­low.”
