Charlie was born and raised in the Harrisburg - Mechanicsburg area
of South-Eastern Pennsylvania, USA, currently residing in Dillsburg.
Charlie has had numerous Creative Outlets over the years; Poetry, Music, Bonsai Trees, Stained Glass, Woodworking, Photography, and Digital Fractals. He has been doing Photography and Fractal Art for
the past 30 years.
A member of the Harrisburg Camera Club, The Art Association of Harrisburg, and the Art Center in Mechanicsburg, he has shown Photography and Fractals in several local art galleries and public venues as well as the Art of the State.
I try to keep human emotions as the subject of my photography; the point of interest may be a tree, an old car, a person, or an animal, but the actual subject is less obvious and often depends upon the heart of the viewer.
When it comes to Fractals, some watch you walk by and whisper:
"Psst, hey you, come look at me".
Other fractals grab you by the collar, yelling in your face:
"LOOK AT ME!"
I strive to incorporate "something known" within the abstract depths of a Fractal to ease the stress from gazing endlessly into the complete unknown.
I strive to create fractals that offer multiple layers to provide the viewer with every opportunity to discover new findings with each viewing.
I have learned that ...
... Creativity will find an outlet, regardless of the tools you possess.
... An Artist never makes a mistake, they just aren't finished yet.
... Art is not always pretty.
... I am still learning ...
