About Being Truly Me

I’m Charlotte the artist behind Being Truly Me. 

As a self-taught artist I blend my love of watercolours, poetry and embroidery to create original artwork, which is heavily inspired by flowers & nature.

Original Artwork

Each piece is unique and something special.  Some have the addition of words, some of which are from poems I’ve written, and some are embellished with hand stitched embroidery. 




At home in my studio

All of my artwork is created by me from my home studio in Wiltshire.  I source all of my materials from local small businesses and all my packaging can be re-used or recycled.

Charlotte Riley Founder and Creator of Being Truly me

As someone who only picked up a paintbrush at the age off 43, having never studied art formally, my style is an expression of everything I am, being truly me.  It’s a blend of everything I love to do, which is to paint, write and sew. I tend to let my intuition take over when it comes to creating my pieces.  There’s never really a plan, only a vision that I want to bring to life.  

“live everyday being truly you"
