Caroline was selected to be one of 150 Finalists with her oil painting ‘Summer Garden, Morning Light—Leamington’ by the Broadway Arts Festival Competition 2022. ‘Whatever the subject matter, be it landscape or still life – whether painting in oils or working on paper with gouache and pastel – my work is driven by a love of nature, of the seasons, the weather, the patterns in landscape, the atmosphere and the light. The very process of oils, or of gouache and pastel, enables me to build my paintings up in considered layers – I start with an idea, but the process sometimes leads me elsewhere. I work less and less from the subject, more frequently from photos, memories, drawings, videos – I find that working this way gives me the freedom to interpret the subject from a distance, not just compositionally but in terms of atmosphere and feeling. My work appears representational but it is always a mix of the literal and the imagination.’
Caroline lives and works in Warwickshire.
