Charmagne Coe is an American surrealist. She creates inner and outer-worldly paintings with watercolor, ink and pastel. Inherent is a deep respect for the nature of automatism, Spirit and contour line. Her work has been included in publications such as Utne Reader, Luxe Interiors + Design and Creative Quarterly. When she is not working in her little studio, she participates in international exhibitions. She also expresses wild expanses and heart-achy characters in pen and ink.
