Biography

Moving to Finistère in 2018, Caroline now shares her time between Brittany and the UK.

After 4 years’ study as a Fine Artist in the UK (Berks College of Art & Design / University of South Wales) between 1980 & 1984, Caroline taught Art & Design from 1990-2016.

Since retiring in 2016, Caroline is now a full time practising artist, sharing her professional activity between her studio practice, drawing on location and offering painting / drawing workshops.


She exhibits regularly in France and the UK and takes part in Urban Sketchers meetings (Urban Sketchers France & UK / USK Morlaix). Passionate about nature, her work is inspired by the landscape and seascape around her home in Brittany and in natural forms found in and around, both mineral and vegetal.

Her subject matter extends to manmade constructions, from neolithic burial mounds to industrial landscapes and to found objects.

Her practice favours a mixed media approach, which emphasises texture, colour and tone in drawings and painting which retain a memory of the processes used through an exploration of mark making.
