Caroline Day

Floral Painter

Caroline gained a First Class BA Hons Degree from Camberwell College of Arts in 1994 and went on to gain a MA with Distinction from Cardiff University in 1996. In addition to painting for galleries, since 2016 Caroline is very proud to have worked in Partnership with English Heritage on an exclusive range of artwork for their gift shops and sites. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is in private collections worldwide.

"My compositions are rooted in a reverence for places and nature, during the ever changing seasons. Florals in particular allow me to engage with colour, light and structure in a wonderful way. Ephemeral in their nature, they give me the unique opportunity to play with the boundaries of time and movement.

"In addition to my love of florals, I also feel a profound emotional and artistic attachment to the Wiltshire landscape around my childhood home. I attempt to capture the essence of a flower or a landscape through intense observation, experimentation with scale, and nuanced use of line and colour. I approach the anatomy of an object, a flower in much the same way as I would a human form, emphasising its planes and contours."
