Charles was born in Zimbabwe. After graduating school from Tafara in Harare he went to work with the renowned sculptor artist Tapfuma Gutsa. Working alongside Tapfuma in their Utonga studio he began to perfect his craft.
It was these early skills which enabled Charles to move to the famous Chapungu sculpture park in Masasa, Harare where he met Gerald Takawira. Charles benefited greatly from working alongside Gerald who was able to show him how to work with many different types of stone. In an environment such as Chapunga inevitably Charles was influenced by many famous sculptor artists including Japanese sculptor Mahaji Asagi, Dominic Behura, Eddie Masaya, Garrison Machinjiri.
He has exhibited internationally including the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2000, De Paul University Art Gallery in Chicago and the National Art Gallery In Zimbabwe. He has a unique style and chooses lesser known approaches to stone carving than the traditional methods.
