CURRENT & UPCOMING EXHIBITS
In November 2018 I moved to a new studio - an old Mill building, built in 1904. With a larger space and with incredible, tall windows and great, natural light, this is another in a series of wonderful studios I have had over the past 30 year, both in England and in the U.S.A.
They have varied in both size and character from the stern of a boat on the river Thames, to a cotton gin warehouse to a converted firehouse, to my current space. Since my working environment, both inside and around my studio, has always been so important, these spaces, in different ways, have been an inspiration to me.
With a larger, workspace, I have been exploring larger scale work and installations, working with antique, Damask wallpaper as my starting point. With the wallpaper mounted on to foam core panels, there are little vignettes inset in to the surface- scenes of people’s private lives, hidden behind the walls. There are key holes where people look out, antique opticians lenses behind which a family portraits sit- a peek in to the history and the people who might have lived in the 1920’s or Victorian times. Positioned in front of the wall panels, is an old arm chair, covered with the same wallpaper pattern paper, and with additional objects attached to it -the idea being that this chair may once have sat inside the home and traces of people long gone might linger there.
In addition, I am excited to be showing a new series of eight, small ‘animal portraits’ in a wonderful little gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This series will be up through the Summer and Fall of this year.

Two house moves in two years has meant little time for involvement in exhibitions. However, new work has been in production and I have made some exciting developments.
Collaboration with a metal fabricator on forged steel pieces has allowed me to pursue an interest in wall sculptures. These include found objects but also, my own, small paintings. (See some this work under "Current" category).
After 5 months of renovating a new home, I have established myself in my NuLu studio and am back at work.
Recent Activity: I participated in Louisville's First Artist Open Studio Tour which was held the weekend ofNov 9th and 10th. Over 70 artists opened their doors for a behind the scenes look at their places of work.
Currently working on a series of miniature hand-made books.

Caroline took one wall of the Steve Wilson Gallery and created a site specific
installation, directly on to the wall. This is an 8ft x 4ft silhouette 'figure' filled
with hundreds of small objects from her personal studio collection.
