Charlotte Smithson is an artist based in Manchester, whose work blends design, craft and botany. A deep concern about our broken relationship with nature is evident in Charlotte’s work, which she explores through site specific installation, stitch, drawing, photography and plant studies.
Charlotte has exhibited plant-based installations nationally, including the RHS Chelsea, End of the Road festival in Dorset, Bloom! York and the Garden Museum, London. She is a resident artist with the Northern Sustainable Darkroom in Leeds.
Her career in the cultural sector spans 15 years. Charlotte works extensively with galleries, museums, heritage organisations and other public spaces across the UK to design visitor experiences that tell stories. She offers consultancy in interpretation, content development and creative community engagement. Her portfolio includes projects with the National Trust, Edinburgh World Heritage, English Heritage and the Science Museum Group.
Charlotte Smithson is proud to be a member and support the aims and objectives of the trade organisation ACID (Anti Copying in Design). All Charlotte Smithson’s designs are supported by ACID through their IP Databank and ACID Marketplace.
