Piece description from the artist
Charlotte’s namesake, Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg. It was said that she often wore her hair braided, but rarely with a crown. Here, she is done in the pop-art style of Richard Avedon and with the city skyline as her crown.
One original, archival print, hand embellished with acrylic iridescent paint on the crown.
