Charity McArdle is an artist and teacher living in Scotland. Her training, in the early 1990's took her to Chelsea School of Art, Middlesex Polytechnic and Oxford University where her work could be described as conceptual painting.
Her current work focuses on more traditional forms such as landscapes and portraits. The balance of colour and gesture - the painterly elements- and representation is what currently occupies her thinking.
Charity works on commission as well as selling her original works. She has three beautiful children who are now doing a fair bit of adulting.
In 2022-23, Charity had her work on show somewhere all year around. She started at Weigh Ahead in Dunblane, a new and lovely pop up. Her work was then exhibited in Aberdeen City Gallery as part of a group show run by the amazing Aberdeen Artists' Society. Following that, her work was featured in Living Magazine and she ran an open studios as part of Forth Valley Open Studios. She then went on to show at Whitespace Gallery, Edinburgh and The Life Room, Edinburgh. Her work was selected for and sold at two prestigious Charity Auctions, MacMillans Big Art Show and Maggies of Aberdeen. It was also featured in the Storms Magazine.
