Elected a member of the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists (RBSA) in 2015, Caroline has exhibited at many galleries including The Royal Society of British Artists, Mall Galleries, London (A & K Wilson Gallery Award 2011), The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Open and Prize Exhibitions (Highly Commended 2010/2012/2017), The Royal Institute of Painters in Oils, The Bankside Gallery, London, The Gallery Cork Street, London, The Gallery Upstairs, Henley in Arden and John Noott Gallery, Broadway. Caroline lives and works in Warwickshire but frequent trips to Cornwall and France provide much inspiration for her work. "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, the light," says Caroline. "I work less and less from the subject, more frequently from photos, memories, drawings and videos – this leaves me the room to interpret the subject from a distance, to add and to edit, always suggesting, never replicating. 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. My work appears representational but it is always a mix of the literal and the imagination."
