Caroline Shotton

You could say Caroline has been moo-ning over cows since she was first inspired by them and much of her time is spent scribbling puns and ideas on any handy piece of paper to think about later – her studio is littered with them!

When Caroline paints her moo-gnificant and majestic bovines she often thinks three dimensionally so glass gems sometimes appear on her original work which feels a totally natural way of adorning her subjects.  You could even say she “milks” them for ideas.

Caroline has always found inspiration in the great outdoors, although she grew up on the edge of London.  As an only child she immersed herself in art books and had the time and space to endlessly create pictures with her crayons – her most exciting treat was to shop for materials and she was fascinated by the whole world of art, commenting “I never wanted a proper job!”.  With easy access to the Capital’s many galleries, her appreciation of art led her to study at Central St Martins where she was influenced by both impressionist and surrealist styles.

Some of her most popular art includes her acclaimed ‘Moo-na Lisa’ and ‘Cow with the Pearl Earring’ amongst others but Caroline’s style, and her images, continue to develop.   She says “cows have so many expressions and small brush stokes can change their character totally”.
