Ever since I was a child waking up to the vibrancy of the early morning light in the hills behind the Cote d’Azur, I have been held in its thrawl.
Light /sunshine as a quality has been the main influence in my life both in my painting and in my physical & emotional sense of wellbeing. It guides me forward in optimism and celebration of life. Colour in this milieu becomes all the more extraordinary and available. All this and more I wish for my viewers.
Caroline was born in London in 1952 and due to European family connections, spent much of her childhood in France & Belgium. She studied at High Wycombe College of Art and Design, where she specialised in painting, sculpture & pottery. She has been living and working in Scotland since 1974 with frequent trips back to the Provence of her childhood. In the tradition of the Scottish Colourists, the quality of light and the vibrant colours of the Mediterranean are found in all her work, be it still life or landscape, Scottish or Mediterranean. There is a resulting peace and serenity to her work.
She has exhibited at galleries in London, Munich, Scotland, and was voted “Public Favourite” at the Edinburgh Festival. She also has collections in the UK, France, Portugal, the USA & Mcgrigor Donald in Glasgow. She had a
permanent exhibition at the Paul Hayes Fine Art Gallery in Auchterarder, Perthshire.
Over the years Caroline has exhibited at several major Scottish galleries including
Anthony Woodd, Dundas St, Edinburgh
The Whitehouse gallery, Kirkcudbright
