From anthropomorphic cats, vibrant MRI brain scans and wrestlers Charlotte brings beauty and vibrant colour to subjects that are often disturbing or uncomfortable. Her love of colour, interest in social justice and current affairs, and the human condition informs much of her subject matter as do her terrifying dreamscapes. Her celebratory use of colour, vividly captures flash points of protest, death, politics and mental health.  She lives and works in East London.

Thanks for joining me!

And so, with hindsight I think some things need to be taken account for. I’m now on the 10th week of being sober and have a little more clarity about the things that have passed. I hope I have enough distance to write about it, without making myself crazy, again.

Issues I want to address are:

Self medicating and denial of mental health issues.

Lack of support for high functioning people with mental health issues

Addiction and mental health, the poisoned wobbie.

Also I want to remind myself of the years spent scrapping myself on the bottom to remind myself of how fucking far I have come.

Misdiagnosis, women and mental health.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

CW Stubbs

CWSTUBBS is a fourth generation self-taught artist, initially specialising in video art and instillation which she funded through her documentary making and work with children excluded from school. Her subsequent images were in high demand as projections on a massive scale in raves and clubs. After the birth of her son and course at the Slade, she reignited her passion for painting. With various album and book covers also showcasing her illustrations, her inimitable work has been showcased widely across London; the inaugural Nasty Women shows, Creative Debuts, Bow Open Studios, an awareness campaign for the closing of Holloway Prison, a joint solo show with Katherine Griffin at Flaxton Ptootch and on T-shirts for The Silver Linings Project
