First institutional solo show at Leeds Art Gallery, 27 May - 30 October 2022.
"The Wisdom Tree includes a number of her signature large-scale drawings as well as more private artworks and notebooks. Highly symbolic, subtle and poetic, Charmaine’s drawings fuse the artist’s interests in herbalism, alchemy and history. Researching the medicinal and physical capabilities of plants, she has personified a matrilineal pantheon of guardians safeguarding and facilitating cross-generational knowledge and empowerment." (Leeds Art Gallery).
