Caroline travels extensively in Australia and overseas and makes artworks that reflect her love of exploring, discovering and living close to nature.

She is an artist who uses elements of etching, aquatint, drawing, painting, relief printing, sewing, found objects , screen printing and much more to create unique collages and editioned  artworks that celebrate the small things that make up life and make life more enjoyable, in particular seasonal shifts and the special value of everyday experience. 

Caroline‚Äôs work is informed by the patterns of nature that are formed by  the action of wind, fire, air water, time, and human intervention. She is interested in the way nature erodes, explodes, decays, degrades, than re-forms and re-patterns itself in response to these forces.

Caroline lives near the small town of Federal in the Byron Shire hinterland of northern New South Wales. You can visit her studio there by appointment or see her work on show at Bangalow Market's Moller Pavilion on the 4th Sunday of the month, when she exhibits her work with other members of the group Art There Collective. Her work is represented in collections worldwide.
