About Charles Hawes

Charles Hawes, known as Bud by his friends, was born in Huntington, W.VA in 1909. Throughout his life Bud's great loves were art and people. These loves are palpably visible in all of his work. His work during his first career (32 years as a nationally recognized illustrator) focused on magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, cartoons and children's books. During this time he became a member of both the National Society of Illustrators and the American Watercolor Society. In 1964 Bud visited St. John in the U.S.V.I. and fell in love with the West Indies and her people. In 1965 he moved to St. Croix, U.S.V.I. where he began his prolific second career, that of a watercolor artist. Bud spent the next 28 years capturing his deep love for these islands and their people through his dynamic watercolors. He often described his style of painting as being loose, impressionistic and realistic. He used a technique called 'forcing color' to capture the ever-moving vibrancy of the West Indies, making many of his watercolors seem alive. Most of these paintings now hang throughout the world in the homes and offices of patrons who also shared that same love.

His remaining collection contains oils, inks and watercolors. To view the entire collection please go to www.charleshawes.org. The majority of this collection is of Caribbean Watercolors but also includes work from the east coast of the United States and his visits to Spain and Portugal. Bud stopped painting in 1993 and in 1999 after a creative and brilliant life he left his body. If you are interested in inquiring about or purchasing any paintings from this collection, please e-mail Kim Burnham at chawesgallery@hotmail.com. Thank you for visiting this site.
