Born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the only son of an artist and metal craftsmen. Charles Willmotts'' artistic talent was noted at an early age. Although he is mainly self taught, Charles did study for a short time at the Birmingham College of Art where he was able to sell much of his art as a student.
Following this, Charles moved into the advertising business and in the late 1980''s after spending many years running his own creative agency, Charles finally took the desicion to paint full time.
He now works from his studio which is attached to his home on the rural borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire where he lives with his wife Susie.
His delicate figuative graphite, charcoal and oil studies with just a hint of colour, explore the relationship between light and texture, capturing the perfect sensuality of the feamle form.
His attention to detail enables him to create highly sought after figurative works, collected by a wide audience including major corporate clients, all of whom appreciate and greatly admire his artistry.
