Caroline uses the human figure as inspiration for her semi-abstract colourful works, and loves exploring a variety of mediums to create texture and pattern, layering paper and found materials over each other to produce her collages. Her watercolour sketches are all from life, using a pipette to apply liquid watercolours, often drawing one figure over another to capture the idea of movement.
Caroline has no formal art training, but has always just enjoyed drawing and painting. When she lived in Atlanta, Georgia, she did a year’s course in anatomical drawing, which began her love of drawing the human figure. Back in the UK she started going to a studio with a life model once her children were at school. At the same time she retrained as a gardener with the RHS and now uses her creativity to help redesign gardens – always using lots of colour and mixing textures!
She also uses clay to create small figurative sculptures, again using texture and layers of glazes and oxides to produce interesting effects.
Caroline is a member of the Richmond Art Society, the Surrey Sculpture Society and KAOS (Kingston Artists Open Studios).
