Caroline grew up in London and attended the London College of Printing where she studied Retail Design. Following on from this she worked as a Graphic designer for roughly 10 years before relocating to Guernsey with her young family.

Since living in Guernsey Caroline has had more time to explore her love of illustration.

I am often inspired by a view, particularly St Peter Port as I prefer buildings to landscapes and make sketches or take photos to use for reference later.

St Peter Port

Her illustrations start as a sketch to get the right composition then she draws with pen and ink. This is scanned into Photoshop where she adds the colour and textures.

I love working this way as Photoshop gives me the freedom to try out different colours during the process and also to add layers of hand drawn elements. I am aiming for a finished look that is part hand drawn, part screen print.
