Born and raised in West Sussex, Caroline studied art and design at Brighton University and has a BA Hons degree in graphic design from The University of the Arts, London.
Caroline lived with her husband in Hove before they found their dream beach house just along the coast, right on the pebbles. They have two young children and Caroline now paints full time from her home studio which looks straight out to sea.
Caroline remembers spending much of her spare time as a child colouring and painting and filling endless sketchbooks with detailed drawings of the Sussex countryside where she grew up. Her appreciation of space, beauty and light that began at an early age continued to develop throughout her life. Now that she lives on a beach, the stunning, ever changing sea views provide constant inspiration for her contemporary fluid paintings. Her home studio is flooded with an amazing quality of light which bounces off the sea all year round. This is uniquely captured in her work through her use of colours, the metallic and pearlised threads of detail and glasslike resin finishes which coat her watery creations.
Working full time as a professional artist Caroline is thrilled to be able to combine her passion for creativity with living by the sea. “The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever” (Jacques Cousteau).
