Carole trained as a Graphic Designer and ran her business in design and marketing for 18 years. In 2007 she turned to painting full time and she now resides and works from her studio in Shropshire. She attended Matthew Boulton College and later studied at Lichfield School of Art. Elected Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in April 2008, Carole regularly exhibits there and in prestigious art fairs and galleries throughout the UK. She is gaining international recognition following articles published in ‘International Artist’ magazine and was invited to the Cayman Islands to run a series of workshops for the Visual Art Society. She has contributed to a series for The Artist magazine on practical painting techniques in acrylics.

Inspired by the landscape, bold, vibrant colour and texture fascinate her and she strives to create exciting and evocative paintings.

Carole’s work is inspired by places she travels and works on location with a sketchbook painting en plein air, getting a real feel for the place so that her paintings are an emotional response, not a literal copy. Art is a passionate and instinctive pursuit, and this certainly resonates with her.

Colour is a vital aspect of her work: “I play with colours and see how I can work with a limited palette, no more than seven colours and generally only three or four. I try different colourways to achieve the right mood and atmosphere. My objective is to hold the viewer’s attention, to draw them into the picture so that they see something different each time they look.” Carole paints in acrylics, mixed media and watercolours.

Carole runs painting workshops throughout the year from her Studio-Gallery in Shropshire for beginners through to exhibiting artists and demonstrations for Art Clubs and Societies.
