He studied primarily under Maynard D. Stewart, a student of Frank Vincent DuMonds and the son of a renowned Utah landscape painter, LeConte Stewart. After receiving his degree, Charles attended classes at the Art Students League with David Leffel, Michael Burban, Jack Faragasso and others. In 1992, Charles moved to Madrid, Spain, where he painted the city and countryside, studied Velasquez, copied master works in the Prado, and attended classes at the Circulo Bellas Artes.”
Charles was the featured cover artist in the April 2013 issue of Southwest Art magazine. He was also included in the July 2012 issue of Art of the West magazine and has been featured in the June 2010 American Art Collector, among others.
Muench’s work is displayed at the Irvine Museum and he was unanimously elected as a Signature Member of the California Art Club
