Artist Profile: Charlotte McGraw

| May 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

As a troubled teenager, when Charlotte McGraw was in need of love and guidance, she was instead institutionalized for many years for behavioral and mental health problems.

Eventually her journey found her taking advantage of the services of Goodwill Columbus, where the artist in residence encouraged her to pursue the arts as a creative outlet.  Charlotte has since created a fictional town called Charlottesville, where creatures that are misunderstood, disrespected and rejected find a home, a hug, unconditional acceptance and a permanent mayor named Charlotte.
