Caroline makes paintings which express a connection with the world around her. Inspired by the contrast thrown up by our digitised homogenised lives and the ancientness of this rock and soil we inhabit, she creates works in response to landscape.
Trained in the early 1970’s to teach art at Homerton College Cambridge, she made a successful career in teaching until taking early retirement to make her way as a professional painter.
Influenced by the English school of landscape painters including Turner and Constable as well as the Abstract Expressionists Franz Kline and Jackson Pollock, she has developed her use of colour and mark-making to express sensations. In this way the hand of the artist can be seen in all its varied gestures and the process of painting is actively evident.
Winner of the Broadway Art festival first prize 2016 and awarded the Oxfordshire Artweeks Mary Moser Award last year, Caroline’s work can be found in a number of galleries throughout the UK. Caroline also runs regular expressive landscape workshops from her base in the north Cotswolds.
