Suite Charlie is a self taught painter, born and raised in Vancouver B.C. When she was 19 she moved to Japan to travel the country and re connect with her roots. Back home in 2011, full of inspiration and in need of an outlet she began to teach herself to paint. She is mixed-race (half Japanese, quarter black, quarter white) which reflects in her mixed media oil paintings and her tendancy to experiment with materials. When not “painting pretty pictures”, she likes to visit her grandmother and cook Japanese food together.
