Carol’s practice explores the abstract forms in the natural environment which act as a vehicle to her connection to the subtle nuances of colour and how colour influences space and form. She
experiences the landscape through the lens of her imagination not from the stand point of horizon line and perspective.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

Place opens up varying ways of seeing; breathing in seeing , breathing out interpretation; breathing in making, breathing out marks, colours breathing in again.
