Charles Pinckney is primarily a self-taught artist. Born in South Carolina, he creates jewelry and small sculpture from metal, stones, bone, and wood. A former radio personality and constant story-teller, Charles describes his imagery as “abstractly related to memories of childhood.” His artworks consider “patterns generated as lives intertwine, the ebb and flow of emotional and personal connections over time.” Charles Pinckney has attended Arrowmont and Anderson Ranch as both student and teacher, studying with Bob Ebendorf, Eleanor Caldwell and Chuck Evans. His work has appeared in several publications, including Southern Living and Ornament Magazines. He has received grants from Georgia Council for the Arts and Tula Foundation Gallery. Recently, the Georgia Museum of Art featured his jewelry in a solo exhibition.
