Books and illustration

I have written and illustrated a number of books and have also worked as a commissioned illustrator.  Email me here with ideas for any illustration projects you'd like to discuss.

Currently I produce an exclusive monthly cartoon page for the NZ-produced positive cultural magazine BiograView and am writing more about my personal transformation through art.

BiograView magazine - exclusive illustration work (2021 - )

Each month I produce an original illustration/cartoon page with the character 'Ad Rem' - in alignment with a subject featured in one of the magazine's articles.

The example here is from the June 2021 issue, and was my response to the theme of creativity/spirituality.

Wandering Under Big Skies

The Coromandel Peninsula through the eyes of an artist

by Charlotte Giblin

Join me as I travel around the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand, capturing the scenery with “fresh eyes” in my cheerful and whimsical illustrative painting style.


Featuring 90 original artworks accompanied by my musings and explanations, this delightful book celebrates both a beautiful corner of the world and the process of a painter’s artistic unfolding.
