Hi there!

I’m Charlie, the artist creating all these colorful (and not so colorful) animal portraits. I also go by SquidTarts on social media and around the web. I absolutely love animals and color!

I live in Fredericton, NB with two border collies, two orange tabbies, a Merauke blue tongue skink, and a man obsessed with foxes. You’ll often see my pets in my work; they’re great models! I most enjoy painting cats and reptiles. I’m always deeply honored when someone chooses me to paint a memorial piece of their pets. I love being able to bring a little piece of that animal back to life. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about my work!
