Charlotte Verity:

Charlotte Verity (b. 1954, Germany). Studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and has been teaching at the Royal Drawing School since 2001. Her paintings come about slowly during many hours of intense looking and close observation. She is preoccupied by the changing nature of the visual world, natural light and the passing seasons. Her subjects are painted with a certain exactitude but her choice of imagery and handling of pictorial space together with her sense of colour give the finished paintings a resonance well beyond the things they depict.  Residencies include those at the Towner Art Gallery; The Garden Museum; and Flatford, Suffolk.  She has exhibited extensively with Anne Berthoud, Browse & Darby and Purdy Hicks. Her work is held in public collections including University College London; MoCA, San Diego; The Arts Council of Great Britain; The Garden Museum; Tate Education; and Deutsche Bank.
