About Me


 

 
My name is Charlotte. I am a Artist, illustrator, Knitwear designer and mum of two boys. I grew up in rural Somerset, in a quiet valley within the rolling Mendip Hills and close to the beautifully expansive Somerset Levels. I spent my childhood drawing and creating surrounded by nature and it has ever since inspired me in all I do.
After studying Womenswear Design at the London College of Fashion, I had a successful career for nearly 2 decades as a senior knitwear designer, working for many well know international brands and being lucky enough to travel the world and meet so many interesting people. I continue to work in fashion on a consulting basis, designing and freelancing under my company CH Fashion Design Consulting Ltd which I founded in 2015 (You can find snippets of my fashion portfolio here). 
After having my two children I started painting more and rediscovering my childhood love of botanical art and Charlotte Hogg Studio was born.  

My vision in launching Charlotte Hogg Studio was to create beauty through botanical hand drawn art, illustration and surface pattern design. My paintings have great attention to detail and at the same time are expressive and free. I love to create unique art for people of all ages who like me, are passionate about flora and fauna and like to be surrounded by the uplifting force of the great outdoors.

All my paintings and patterns are completely created and designed by me. Everything is hand painted using mainly watercolour and acrylics however I do also use gauche, pastels and pencils in some of my paintings. I often work digitally to finish patterns and prints and have expert experiance in working in programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator. All my personalised prints are unique with every single name print being one of a kind.

I have work licensed in the US and I am currently working on collections for Wallpaper, fabrics. and greeting cards. I have a hand painted lamp shade colection launching soon and I am currently working on a beautiful hand painted floral wall mural for a stunning Geogian Boutique Hotel, Bowlish House in the heart of Somerset. Please find me on instagram for images and updates of my most recent work.

I am passionate about the ethicacy of my brand, please find my environmental policy here.
