Caroline has always been interested in combining art with life, attending Life Drawing classes, evening classes and a part-time Art Foundation class whilst bringing up four young children. Once the children were at school she combined a Garden Design Course at Writtle Agricultural College with part-time work for the mosaic artist Anne Schwegmann-Fieding, who specialised in community projects. Working in schools, colleges, hospitals and public outside spaces gave an insight into the importance of including the community with the work and encouraging them to take ownership of each project.

Since 2009 Caroline has been attending the Colchester School of Art and Design, and graduated from a degree in 3D Art and Design in June 2012. The work for her degree included porcelain pieces with the addition of feathers, lace and bio resin.

Since finishing the degree Caroline has continued her own work alongside teaching ceramics in Primary and Secondary Schools as an Artist in Residence through a Crafts Council initiative.
