Charlotte Bird




Charlotte Bird has been a full time studio artist for over thirty years. Her lifelong love affair with textiles has produced contemporary wall quilts, three dimensional sculptures, one of a kind artist’s books and one of a kind women’s clothing. She dyes, prints and silk screens her own fabrics. Her  work is represented in both public and private collections around the country including hospitals and school settings. She lives and works in San Diego, California.


Time, process and change are persistent themes in Charlotte Bird’s work. Patterns, shapes and lines in the visible and invisible natural world are infinitely fascinating. Lichens, mosses, ferns and fungi all produce organic structures that speak of the passage of time and the changing landscape over which we humans have much responsibility.
