The Malibu Studio
Artist Charlie Patton began his painting career as a young child in Southern Indiana, surrounded by the beauty of the Midwest.
His love of art began with his first teacher, a 92-year-old artist named, Emma Schultz, who had been a German Impressionist painter at the turn of the century.
During their first painting session, young Charlie was amazed by the old woman’s ability to turn a simple canvas with a piece of charcoal into a beautiful rendering with a few trained strokes. From that point on, began Charlie’s passion for art.
