Thames Afternoon, Ebb II, etched lino

Caroline makes many of her prints on a converted cast iron mangle, which was rescued from destruction. "It is a marvel of Victorian engineering, which can easily be taken apart for transporting," she says. "Landscape, natural forms, water and light are the subjects that inspire me. These interests were encouraged in early childhood by my nanny and parents, in the high Cotswolds and on seaside holidays in Dorset. They were keen gardeners and nature lovers and I readily absorbed their enthusiasms, which continue to this day. In my work, I use a variety of printmaking techniques: collagraph; lino cut; wood engraving; acetate drypoint; monoprint and collage. I have recently extended my practice to include hand-made books and paper constructions with printed elements.  This work is inspired by my passion for growing organic fruit and vegetables on my allotment. I am a Quaker, which influences the way I live my life and think about the world. This includes care of the environment and sustainability. 'We do not own the world and its riches are not ours to dispose of at will.' (Quaker Faith and Practice, Advices and Queries 42)." Caroline studied at Sir John Cass College (now part of London Guildhall University), specialising in printmaking and gained a Diploma in Art & Design Studies in June 1988. She has five sons and nine grandchildren and works from her home in Newcastle upon Tyne. Caroline has twice exhibited in the RA Summer Show and has taught adult education printmaking classes.
