My inspiration for my work has always been around where I have lived.
The beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds, with its woodlands and farm meadows full of wildlife and wild flowers, and also a pretty village in Cornwall, with plenty of wildlife, as well as beautiful coastal scenes.
I now live in rural Wiltshire with its farmland, and beautiful woodlands that surround my home and studio giving me subjects in abundance.

I lovelingly observe all the little creatures around me, capturing their character and quirkiness, with colour washes that give depth and dimension, but retaining the watercolour painting and not a photograph of the subject.

Carole has amazing observation of all her subjects, having been influenced by the natural world from a very early age.
In her childhood she would spend many hours watching little creatures visiting her garden, often picking-up leaves, flowers, berries and leaves to take home, so she may sketch them later.

Each subject is created after lots of research from her valuable collection of natural history books and photograph reference materials, that she has taken herself.
This is all displayed in the way she approaches her distinctive and unique painting style.

Carole achieved a first class degree in fine art and illustration, along with craft & design.
This has given her an amazing wealth of knowledge and understanding of her favourite medium watercolour

These are the subject's that Carole has a passion to paint, it is so important that we remember all these amazing creatures we share our planet with, and can be approached to help in wildlife conservation in any way she can.
