Charles H. White
Born in Quebec, Canada in 1943, Charles displayed a very early interest in art by drawing wildlife in pencil and ink at age six. By age twelve he was painting landscapes in oils and sold many through his teenage years.
Deciding to further his artistic talents and business skills at Brigham Young University, he graduated with a B.A. in 1967. His over 50 years of painting experience are evident in his gardens and landscapes. They capture nature's essence by mastering the radiant interplay of light and shadow, infusing nature's beauty with a sense of tranquility and serenity. Charles' time-consuming technique creates a luminous multi-layered work that invites the viewer into a world of beauty and timeless elegance. That he connects with the viewer on an emotional level is evident from the sale of well over 8,000 originals and prints in the last fifteen years.
Charles White is featured as one of America's favorite artists by Hadley House Publishing and has been the subject of many newspaper and national art magazine articles. His images have been licensed by dozens of national companies including The Bradford Exchange, Pine Ridge Art, Taylor Cards, Cathedral Press and the National Wildlife Federation.
Participating in many one-man shows around the country, Charles White has demonstrated at the Art Expo in New York, the ABC Show in Atlanta and ArtLink 2000 in Orlando. He also conducts lectures and workshops, has produced an instructional video and teaches classes in oil and acrylics every week to share his experience and techniques with other artists. In between he manages to create between 30 and 40 paintings each year for his expanding number of collectors.
