I’m Charis, and I make pictures that tell stories and evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity.
Art matters. Stories matter. Both bring people together. I believe so because I see it happen all the time: when reading my favourite stories and graphic novels, making art with students, and connecting with people while drawing on location.
I teach art and am involved in community arts education, while on the academic side, I have a ScB in Biochemistry from Brown; this interdisciplinary foundation helps me create work that's informed by different perspectives and ways of seeing the world.
