Born and raised in Queens, New York, Charles studied at the School of Visual Arts where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
As a classically trained painter working in oils, inspired by mythology and the works of impressionists, Charles' work evokes the timeless, the classic, and the ancient.
He is now an art instructor at several schools throughout the metropolitan area, as he continues to create new work inspired by the beauty of nature.
