During the winter 2000-2001 she was a full time student in Fine Arts, i.e. watercolor, oil painting, drawing, portrait, model drawing and art history in the Long Beach City Collage in California. She graduated with the highest score or: "Dean's high honor student". Charlotta was greatly influence by the atmosphere and joy of color in California. This is particularly evident in the strong colors she is drawn to and uses a great deal in her works.
