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.
