Charles Pickworth, born Dunedin 1953 and attended St. Kevin’s College in Oamaru, New Zealand.
After moving to Christchurch I began painting in oils mainly from photographs and later slowly transferring into painting on location. I am self-taught and on location (en plein air) is where I prefer to paint, only occasionally using photographs for commissions.
I contacted polio at aged 4yrs and can only use one arm but this doesn’t hinder me at all. I frame my own work and have been painting full-time for about 25 years working in oils and acrylics, painting most subjects including the odd portrait.
