I was born Charlene Ann Dellaria and raised in central New Jersey. I am a self-taught artist, and am inspired by the beauty of nature and wildlife. I have worked in an array of media over the years, but pen and ink would be a favorite. I resurrected an old kiln and started my own home business, working crafts shows and taking orders. Currently my work is available through different websites. In addition to my own website, you can see my work at: www.creativeartworks.cc.
