Charlotte Cotterill

Charlotte is a recent graduate of the Children’s Book Illustration MA from Cambridge School of Art; she is originally from Nottinghamshire and moved to Cambridge in September 2014 to study. Real life and real people always inspire Charlotte’s work, however loosely, and she loves inventing stories and art based on what she sees in her daily life.

 Charlotte’s artwork has been recognised by Macmillan publishers gaining her ‘highly commended’ in the prestigious Macmillan Prize in June 2016. She is currently working on a new picture book to be published by Faber and is still living and working in Cambridge. 

The preview for Charlotte's exhibition will be on the 16th November from 7.00-9.00pm. Her exhibition will consist of two series of works:

‘A Day in the Life of Hot Numbers’

The MA course started out with an observational drawing module, which Charlotte loved so much she carried the theme on into her next project and produced a series of paintings based on a day in the life of Hot Numbers. The images are all from one perspective of the café, which has changed dramatically since the refurbishment, and depicts the comings and goings of semi-invented figures and changes to the environment. The passage of time is also captured by the change of light in the paintings, which depicted through the use of colour from orange in the morning to blue in the evening. The paintings are all made using watercolour and white ink.


‘Gilbert’ is a picturebook project created using handmade lino prints that are then digitally coloured this shows a different and more graphic stand to Charlotte’s work. The story was inspired by a real man with a huge beard who she saw walking down Mill Road one day. The original artworks on display are limited edition lino cut prints that are hand pressed using oil based black ink onto acid free paper.
