As a kid, I started out drawing unicorns. Unicorn after unicorn after unicorn...

I still draw my favorite things, but I’ve diversified a little! You’ll find boats, birds beasts and blooms of all shapes and sizes. I love the challenge of shaping these favorites into new and interesting forms, and there is nothing more satisfying than creating a fresh and original design.

My designs are influenced by my life. By Cape Cod, where I grew up, and which engendered my love of the sea. By the global cities I've been lucky enough to live in since: St. Pete (Florida), Shanghai, London, and Boston. And by my love of critters great and small.

When I'm not making art, you will usually find me out on the water sailing, rowing or paddleboarding or cruising the bike path on my rollerblades. When the New England weather is a little less warm, you can fine me on the slopes!

Who Doesn't love a picnic? by Charlotte Dorris (Chardor Design)

We all enjoy a good picnic...unfortunately so do the sneaky seagulls! More than once over the years they've swooped in to snatch a bag of chips or even a sandwich. These days I may have upgraded to wine and cheese, but I still remain vigilant for these persistent pinchers of picnic provisions!
