Caroline trained as a multi-media designer and gained her degree in 3D Design in 1992. Her career began with costume design for theatre and book illustration. In 1994 she began to work for IBM as a Web Designer and Animator and later formed a Web-Design agency with her husband.
Now working full-time as an artist in Wiltshire, Caroline brings a contemporary approach to the classical portraiture genre. With her design background and training in the sight-size method, Caroline is an accomplished drawer and oil painter.
Focusing on female subjects in contemplative moments in time, Caroline often applies a layered process where she positions still-life objects and areas of text and texture separate to the traditional picture plane of the central figure.
There is a subtle interplay of light and a feeling of timelessness in Caroline’s paintings; we are pleased to be introducing Caroline’s work to the gallery this Spring 2019.
