Upon retirement from successful careers in the private and non-profit sectors, Char began exploring ways to express her life’s journey through her canvas paintings and the upcycling of discarded wood pallets.
In 2016 Charlene formed Amagical Art to showcase her art and offer new inspirations for purchase. As a new artist in the community, her work is gaining popularity throughout the Reno/Sparks area as well as nationwide. Her art represents her deep feelings about her life’s journey; it is both a challenge and an outlet; a discipline and a passion. Char’s preferred medium is acrylic paints and she uses many different styles and techniques in her art that creates unique one of a kind pieces. She has her collection series, her upcycled wood pallets, and her work with resin and glass. She is constantly creating and selling her art.
When Char isn’t painting, she volunteers with groups to help animals and children who have been abused overcome hardships from their life’s journey.
Char also promotes local artist’s work by offering advertising and marketing services made available on her website www.amagicalart.com. She understands that emerging artists may not have the resources to create a professional website and she offers local artist’s a dedicated page to showcase their art.
