From 13th February for six weeks the pictures on our shop and cafe walls are by Carolyn Carter. Carolyn has lived and worked in and around Bath for 17 years, since her degree in Illustration. Graduating in 2000, she has since worked as an in-house artist for two greetings card publishers, Meri Meri and Ling Design. Alongside this she has undertaken group and solo exhibitions of her originals as well as exhibiting in Galleries and completing many individual commissions.
She works in a wide variety of media, her watercolour and acrylic paintings are rich in colour and light, often inspired by the countryside and wildlife around her, or fables and narratives that have captured her imagination. Her recent bird paintings have explored the fascinating character of the creatures, their beauty and the significance of song and flight as metaphors for freedom.
Carolyn also enjoys designing, she has a wealth of experience in greetings card design, producing bespoke wedding invitations and designing promotional material for events. Working in design she also gets to play with a whole host of other styles and media.
We will also be selling her colourful greeting cards in the shop.
