Charlotte Jane Kessler


The relationship between our outer and inner worlds perpetually inspires me. I paint nature's hidden songs, heard through the poetry of archetype, myth and landscape. The grace, power and fragility of life longs for us to hear it. Listen quietly when you look at my pictures - hear what the bumblebee says to you about time!

The healing power of creativity and gathering in circle is age old and if you are interested in using art therapeutically or being in a group with other women to support, express and grow I am offering limited spaces on my groups. Find out more here: Workshops

Commissioning a piece is great fun and an honour to do

Together we can get clear on the perfect painting you want for your home or office.

I am experienced in the art of transforming what people see in their minds eye into a piece of art, be that a painting or a wall mural. I keep close to your personal ideas and vision and can help draw out the painting, even if you’re struggling to get clarity but have a ‘feeling’ how you would like a piece to be.  Here's how it works


What you see are exquisitely hand finished limited edition prints or private commissions to enrich your home or workplace.  Some hang in collections in far flung places. Many more reside on bedside tables or in softly-lit alcoves. Recurring themes of magic, self-knowledge and the feminine are waiting to delight you.Visit my current collections here: discover A Time of Bees; explore mythical portraits of Feminine Awakening or meet Wise Dawn and her friends, the Long Ladies.

New Etsy for Cards

Inspired by a beautiful book on medieval beekeeping, I created some miniature paintings which have been made into beautiful greeting cards. Click on the link above to see Christmas cards and more bee cards coming soon!



Preferring traditional techniques like those of the Renaissance masters, I work mainly in oil on canvas or board. Acrylics and other materials come into play too, before being delivered as commissioned paintings or translated into fine art limited edition prints. Depth is everything.

All Charlotte Kessler hand-finished prints are created using the highest quality Giclee process on heavy-weight non-fade paper ensuring they are treasures which can pass from generation to generation. Which ones would you want to live with?
