Question
I have an owl painting signed c. roberts that has been in my home for many years and i can find nothing about the artist have you any information?

Answer
I know of one C. Roberts who does animal paintings.

Charlie Roberts was born in Hutchinson, Kansas in
1983. He started making art in high school when he and
his friends made posters to promote their band. Not
until he took an art class from an especially influential
high school art teacher did he become, as he puts it,
“obsessed” with painting. Still, art did not seem like a
realistic option to him, so he entered the University of
Kansas as a history major. There he heard an art history
professor tell such vivid stories about visual artists
and their work that he committed himself to art, left
the University of Kansas, and enrolled at the Emily Carr
Institute of Art + Design in Vancouver, British Columbia,
where he studied painting for two years. Roberts lives
and works in Asker, Norway.

I could not find any auction records associated with this artist though.
