Carole was born and bred in Southampton and was originally a teacher specialising in the arts, with a Professional Diploma in Creative Studies from King Alfred’s College, now part of Winchester University. She began printmaking as a member of the Red Hot Press fine art workshop in Southampton and has taken part in several Hampshire art exhibitions.
Her work is mainly inspired by the need to care for the environment, both natural and historical. Her most recent work has been shown as part of the Mayflower 400 exhibition ‘Navigating a New World’ at God’s House Tower.
Carole’s preferred method of printmaking at present is linocut, either single block or using the scary-but-satisfying reduction process.
