Charlotte Noruzi’s artwork is unique, eye-catching, and colorful—just what we need as the COVID-19 pandemic re-surges across the country. With all of the chaos and uncertainty in the news and the world around us, it’s extra important to appreciate the good things, too. Good things like a trip home for the Fourth of July, a glass of wine with a friend at a socially-distanced outdoor restaurant, the hydrangeas blooming in Park Slope Heaven…and how some people are talented enough to capture it all in art. I came across Charlotte’s work and was so impressed by the creativity and optimism she captures that I wanted to feature her for you all to see as well. So, without further ado, let’s say “hello” to Charlotte Noruzi, Artist and Founder of Charlotte Noruzi Art.
About Charlotte Noruzi Art…
- What mediums do you use most? I use a variety of materials and often mix them in one drawing or painting: from watercolor (my favorite) and gouache, to pastel, pen and ink, collage, and monoprinting. I’m always trying new techniques and exploring new ways of communicating through art.
- What do you enjoy painting most? I love being in nature and find its forms, colors, and shapes to be an endless inspiration for my work. I also love to draw fashion (a continued passion of mine), and people also offer such an invaluable basis for study
- How can we help support your business during / after the COVID-19 pandemic? Before COVID, much of my sales and new connections were through Open Studio/Art Salon events and artisanal fairs. In lieu of that, it would be wonderful to have more traffic driven to my website and my Instagram page. I am also trying to organize another virtual art salon where people can Zoom in for an online art tour of my work, later on in the year.
- Do you do custom requests? Yes, I do
About Park Slope…
- What’s your favorite season in Park Slope? Spring (the tulips and cherry blossoms)!
- What are your three favorite restaurants/shops in Park Slope? Sterling Place, Piccoli Trattoria, and Roots Cafe.
- Where are you from? / Where do you live now? I’m Persian, growing up in northern NJ. I live in South Slope 🙂
- How long have you been an artist? I think I always knew that I wanted to be creative, ever since I was a kid!
- Do you have any pets? Yes! My two beloved cats, Tiger Lily and Elsie (who are venturing to the beach with me this summer!)
“I believe art can be a connection, a bridge to our memories,
joys, passions. My creative purpose is linked to this desire to
connect to people, with the intention of bringing them closer
to their own joys and passions.”
