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.
Leading on from her decorative painting work, Caroline took up watercolour painting during her time in Portugal and when she moved permanently to the Algarve, took a journey into oil painting which is now the medium she normally uses. She has been exhibiting in Lagos and elsewhere for over twenty years and occasionally runs short workshops
Caroline can be contacted through her web site. She is available for commissions.
