Charles Baunach has enjoyed art since childhood. Following various health set backs, Charles says that he did nothing for many years and that Artists First helped him resume creating his art. Charles enjoys the challenge of using shapes and angles to create the perception of depth and three dimensions in his painting. Charles also enjoys the challenge of re-purposing unused every-day items or items found in nature, such as, transforming an old wooden baseball bat or interesting looking branch into a walking stick or transforming seashells into pieces of jewelry. Charles also enjoys photography, gardening, and making jewelry.
