Artwork by Charles Robichaud

Charles Robichaud

South Atrium | February 2015

Charlie is a self-taught artist, new to painting. His goal is to create atmospheres with a soul. Some of which have no compass, no true north. He believes that if you turn them around, you will be surprised at what you find. Charlie lives and works in Kelowna, British Columbia but was born in Saint John, New Brunswick and raised in Hammond River, New Brunswick. He loves beauty in almost all forms (although snakes still freak him out). He wishes those who have read this, an inspired, beautiful and peaceful existence on life's journey. And to pay it forward.
