Caroline has lived in six different countries and likes Canada the best. She lives in the middle of the forest, by a river, close to the prettiest town in Eastern Ontario, on acres upon which she expects to do nothing but let Nature work her magic.
Having been told several times in her early life that she was too smart to do art, she used her academic studies in geography, geology and ecology as an excuse to draw diagrams and pictures on blackboards, make worksheets with lots of colour and labels, make costumes for amateur theatricals and re- enactors, and clothes and jewellery for herself and friends. Oil painting sneaked itself in from time to time. Somewhere along the way she demonstrated a talent for teaching the unteachable, particularly teenagers, and got employment as such. Now she is retired, she can finally get down to doing art on a serious basis.
She has exhibited in the Joseph Sisters Gallery in Leesville, Louisiana and in the RAD gallery in De Ridder, Louisiana. She was a member of the the co-op Grist Mill Gallery in Westport. Caroline has participated in Rideau Lakes Artist Association shows since 2015, and currently has work on show in Perth ( Fiddleheads restaurant and Elliott St. Medical clinic) and Smiths Falls ( Coffee Culture and Smiths Falls Vetinarary Clinic) Although Her favourite medium is oil, she also uses both acrylics and watercolours, and she enjoys the Batik workshops given by fellow RLAA member Jennifer Raby. Landscapes are a favourite subject, along with botanicals.
Her work hangs in homes, offices and other places in Canada, England and Wales, and the southern USA. A portion of each art sale is donated to The Brain Tumor Charity.
