Caroline is influenced by the farm she lives on, where she helps run a small holding of sheep, cattle, horses and poultry. She is driven by the exploration of creatures and their characteristics. Capturing a moment in time though form, colour and texture. Using a variety of processes, primarily painting and original prints, how these processes can affect the character and position of the figurative study. Inspired by everyday occurrences, movement in animals, nativity, the subtleness of life surrounding us and how each of these characters make their way through life.
Through a lifetime of training horses and experiencing life on a cattle range in Wyoming, Caroline has created a range of linocuts and linocut screen-prints to capture the essence of the power of the horse.
Her practice has included regular commissions of portraits, in particular with horses and dogs, ensuring a representation of character. She thoroughly enjoy these commissions, as each one she finds a welcome challenge to create a successful piece for a happy customer. She finds herself very fortunate to have returning customers and regular commissions.
