Her stage name is "Charlötte" and came up, in her words, because that is how her family calls her, so it is a nickname that helps her staying faithful to who she is, without completely losing her identity. The love for creativity is a family bond since her sister, although she uses other techniques and in general her perspectives are different from Charlotte’s, is an illustrator.

The artistic process of each person is different. In Charlötte’s case, she bets to illustrate directly where she will work (for example a notebook, a canvas), in this way her ideas flow more easily, and her technique works.

For many, the artist is one of the biggest promises in the industry. Among the colors that stand out in their work is turquoise and salmon, which show their clear tendency to romantic, femininity and nature.

The lines that give natural and delicate movement to her drawings are what marks her own style. This varies according to the support and theme where the artist is working. In the variety of textures and colors that his creations use, the characteristic of his work is based.
