Charlotte Massey is a 19-year-old local student artist who started painting last year because the high school had her take an art class in order to graduate. She discovered a dormant love for art and is pursuing her passions for painting and learning at Middlebury College in Vermont.
Charlotte is inspired by the untold stories of the people around her, manipulating traditional portraits to evoke an emotion or explore an idea. She took a semester off before continuing her education at Middlebury College. Charlotte used this time to sell art at Leavenworth Art in the Park, travel around Europe, work at local nonprofit Artis and run a youth art group through an ANNpower grant.
