Charlotte Bird`s art career began in 1987 after her husband and her spent most of a year in a cabin in Denali National Park in Alaska. Since then she has explored a variety of art forms including: one of a kind women's clothing, art quilts, artist books, textile design and dyeing, and mixed media sculptural forms. Textiles always played a central role in her work. A lifelong interest in anthropology provides a foundation for many of the marks she chooses to use.
Her work is in both public and private collections. She was once the President of the Visions Art Museum.
