Medium: Mainly Oils, some Watercolours
In 1991, Caroline retired early from a banking career in London and apart from spending more time playing golf and becoming Lady Captain at her club near Tunbridge Wells, she also discovered a creative flair for Interior Design and Decorative Painting and took a City and Guilds course which quickly led to commissions painting murals, trompe l’oeil and furniture. In 1995, Caroline and her husband bought a house in Figueira where they spent the winter months and in 2002, they moved permanently to the Algarve.
Caroline also trained to become a Kinesiologist and teacher of Touch for Health although she is semi retired from this now.
Leading on from her decorative painting work, Caroline took up watercolour painting during her time in Portugal and was soon exhibiting in Lagos and other locations. She then took a journey into oil painting which is now the medium she normally uses. She is inspired by the ever changing seascapes and the beautiful countryside that surrounds her home near Espiche.
Normally Caroline’s work is only shown at exhibitions but at present some of her work is on display at the ZaZa restaurant in Burgau.
Caroline is available for short workshops but not for ongoing classes.
Caroline can be contacted through her web site. She is available for commissions.
