Hi I’m Caroline, a self taught artist from Medway. I’ve spent my life creating art in one form or another for as long as I can remember.  I started to paint in oils from the age of fifteen and continued into my twenties when having children and working as an administrator took over my life for many years. I started to paint again in my forties and now paint in acrylics and watercolour. I mainly produce small works which are inspired by nature - flowers and wildlife. I adore colour and lean towards a folk art style.

Another love of mine is needlecraft which I have never stopped doing. I no longer make clothes but still always have a patchwork quilt or three on the go and more than likely some crochet projects too! I also enjoy making ornamental textile pieces, especially my Owls which all have their own personalities. Each one is totally unique and embellished with beading and embroidery.
