Charlotte Oxenham is a graduate Fine Art student, studied at Staffordshire University in the UK (2016-2020). Her University practice mainly utilises painting and sculpture combined, also exploring photography and digital editing. The contextual factors of her practice usually involve personal experiences such as anxiety and insecurities. She includes these ideas because showcasing this concept in a visual artistic form would allow people that can relate to these situations be more understanding that they are not alone.
Outside of university, she creates pencil and painting studies that capture emotion and likeness in any image that focuses on people or surroundings. The key aspects of her practice are unique techniques within the studies and emotion due to expression and colour tones. She also creates art pieces in digital art and continues to progress with her realistic illustrations.
