I'm from London in the UK where I lived and grew up. At the age of 33 I immigrated to Canada, in search of the big wild outdoors, opportunities, and new adventures. I was attracted to this vast country with its population of almost half that of England, and a lot of water.
Although Montreal has been my home for the past few years, where I was touched by the warmth of the people, and a beautiful multicultural mix of communities from all over the world, I consider myself a global citizen, living a life of freedom, wherever my curiosity takes me.
I’m a visual artist, filmmaker, storyteller and entrepreneur.
My medium of choice, as a Visual Artist is painting and drawing, and I’ve been working in the entertainment business since 1997, as a sculptor-mold maker.
I make sets for films and TV shows, and I've also worked on many productions as a prosthetic make-up artist, making creature FX for films like Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Brothers Grimm, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, James Bond and several of the X-Men movies.
Integrity, authenticity, appreciation and quality, are values that radiate through my artwork with a high attention to detail, by my choice of materials, and how I portray my subjects in portraits. I discover their essence, by carefully studying the history ingrained in their faces, listening to their life stories, interviewing and talking with them. This is highlighted in one of my most important projects: “This Is Project You”.
I have an online business, which allows me the freedom to work wherever I want, allowing my creativity and innovation to take the lead, without time constraints. I mentor other entrepreneurs and creatives to find their own freedom, to create the life they have always dreamed of, on their terms and to suit who they are.
My curious nature leads me to challenge and question the status quo, addressing issues surrounding the interconnectedness of humanity, global warming and environmental pollution.
This is in line with my mission to develop unity within Humanity and work towards a world of appreciation and peace.
Project YOU is an artist‘s tribute to human connection, appreciation and respect, and to the joy of discovering who people are. It’s a tribute to the journey we call life, and sharing real experiences with one another, creatively and actively in the present moment.
YOU, is a compilation of pencil portraits, rebels stories, interviews and insights, which will be made into an art book telling the autobiography of my life. It will intertwine my own experiences and learnings, with the stories of people I have met along the way.
Each person that I draw a portrait of for this art book, shares about who they are, an important story from their life so far, what they learned from it, and a memory of a time they spent with me.
Each portrait is a unique portrayal of that person, and how I see their essence. They are a mark of my appreciation for each person, and their various contributions to my life. For me, having appreciation of someone, is to have an understanding and an enjoyment of their distinctive qualities and characteristics.
“I believe appreciation to be the glue that helps stick humanity together.”
As a collection, the portraits explore the unique ways in which we see each other, often in ways that we might not even be aware of.
Project YOU open a discussion to who we are as individuals, and how we see the essence of ourselves and others, paving the way for better understanding between us, and a more unified humanity.
“Each drawing is a window into each character, and a conduit to the stories that make them unique.”
I am Charlotte Greenwood, creator of the Create Connect movement. I am an artist, and filmmaker. My expression of creativity, integrity, passion and courage, is the foundation that fuels the main threads of interest running through Create Connect‘s work; our inter connection as individuals, and as a Human race, environmental pollution and our connection with nature.
By designing projects, workshops and running programs that use creativity to portray, discuss and raise awareness around these subjects, my mission is to create unity within humanity, by reconnecting Humans with each other and with nature, to form strong communities who work together, innovating solutions to defend, restore and nurture our natural environment.
Create Connect is a group space where as well as sharing my own experiences, explorations, discoveries, and tips to a healthier, more connected world, I invite you all to share yours too. You never know who is listening, and who might need some inspiration.

A BIT OF BACKGROUND
My teachings are based on what I’ve learnt from life as an artist, Crossfit Trainer and working for 20 years in the Film / TV business. From working in fast paced environments, where things change on a dime.
My online business is an important part of my multi-faceted business puzzle. It allows me to freely express my creative passions, in the other parts of my life, by bringing me financial and time freedom. It is largely because of my choice to learn how to do business online, that you are actually here reading this right now.
My journey in the online business world has opened up exponential possibilities, and has turned my life around. I am truly appreciative of the time I have had available to learn, during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is what provided me the opportunity to pivot during this time of uncertainty and to create myself an alternative to the reality I was living before.
Opening my online business has taught me so much about marketing, community building and to become a better version of myself.
I now have a whole new toolkit of knowledge to create with.
The strategies, techniques and tools that I have learnt can all be adapted to market my artwork and fund my own projects with more ease and flow.
