About the Artist
Charity works in oils on canvas and her work is an attempt to capture shifting light, mood and atmosphere. Seascapes are an excellent vehicle for this but Charity is also an accomplished portrait artist.
Charity McArdle is an artist and teacher living in Scotland. Her training, in the early 1990's took her to Chelsea School of Art, Middlesex Polytechnic and Oxford University where her work could be described as conceptual painting.
Her current work focuses on more traditional forms such as landscapes and portraits. Her current focus is an attempt to capture an elusive weather pattern or atmosphere using gestural marks and subtle colour shifts.
Charity works on commission as well as selling her original works. She has three beautiful children who are now doing a fair bit of adulting.
