Growing up in the Valley of the Sun, Charlotte Dreams first discovered her talent for the expressive art form of Photography when she spontaneously took a darkroom course in high school. Almost instantly, a love was born, and a profound, natural talent emerged. She then began carrying her Pentax K1000 SLR camera everywhere she went, developing black and white prints, and capturing the timeless beauty of both her human subjects and the Sonora desert. In her early 20's, Charlotte immersed herself into the world of self-taught Graphic Design. With this union of special effects, and her dreamlike images, she was able elevate her work to new heights, moving into the imaginative realm of fantasy.
With her free-natured, creative spirit, Charlotte provides much more than a mere photo shoot. It is rather transformed into a photographical encounter, a magical event, having the ability to take us far away, yet at the same time root us back to the earth. Effortlessly, she expertly extracts the ethereal essence of her willing subjects. With human face and frame as her canvas, she creates extraordinary beauty in what may seem like simple nature and pose. There is no mystery here, but a hint of the mystical instead.
There are so many things in life that inspire her to experience the most of every moment. With her exquisite eye for detail, her prints become living works of art. It brings her great pleasure to offer us a glimpse into the world seen through her "lens". Simply put, Charlotte paints poetry with her pictures and inspires the best we have inside to peek out from within our waiting places. When beheld through her eyes, she finds in each of us the beauty we never knew existed. Suddenly, we are no longer negatives, except on film.
Miss Dreams currently resides in Oregon where she feels at home amid the faerie-world backdrop of greenery, ferns, and waterfalls. Although she is known to enjoy spontaneous bouts of wanderlust- traveling the country, capturing beauty, and spending time with people she holds dear; the fantastic colors of nature, and pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest, inspire her to remain close to Cascadia.
