About the Artist
Cecilia Charlton (b. 1985, USA) is a London-based American artist. Coming from a family background in sewing and needlecraft, she graduated from painting courses at Hunter College and the Royal College of Art. Her work melds painting and textiles to result in what have been referred to as “needle-paintings” – artworks which have an optically challenging, colourful and playful approach to abstraction while drawing on the personal and cultural histories of both needlecraft and abstract art. Cecilia lives and works in London, UK.
