Charlie Calder-Potts

British artist Charlie Calder-Potts works in mixed media from her studio in Hackney, London. She has had notable exhibitions and commissions both in London and abroad. Her installations have included large scale aluminium pieces, armoured metal, wood panel and vellum paper, combining photography, painting and drawing.

Her most recent work is inspired by her time spent in Afghanistan where she was sponsored as an Official War Artist by The British Army. She is currently working on a new series based on her time in Iraq earlier this year.
