Charlie was born in Flint Michigan and lived in Owosso Michigan. He now resides with his wife and three dogs in Woodstock Georgia. He has been creating for over twenty years. He spends most of his time working because challenging himself is his inspiration. Every piece that he creates does not leave his studio until he is completely satisfied. He says that he tends to see technology and modern day industry through his artwork. Charlie prefers structural elements wrapped with organic metal such as brass, bronze and copper for his artwork.
