Caroline Ashwood

I was born in 1970 in Yorkshire where I spent many happy childhood hours painting and sketching in the bluebell woods near my home. Having shown a talent for drawing and creativity, I received formal art training as a graphic designer and a successful career in advertising with agencies like M&C Saatchi in London. Encouraged by a popular following and patronage for my artwork, I decided to paint full time in 2002. My work is featured in many private collections worldwide and she has exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the UK. I work as a full time artist from a yorkshire art studio where I get physical with the paint and canvas. My work is visceral and spontaneous. When I paint, I rely entirely on my instincts. Using my hands to work the paint washes around the surface, I continually move the artwork back and forth to keep the colours flowing. Eventually I reach a point where I allow the paint to take the control so that I can revel in the prospect of the paint surprising me yet again. Through my work, I am constantly exploring the relationship between colour, light and form. Even though it was drilled into me in my earliest formal art studies that drawing and draughtsmanship are of critical importance to serious artistic endeavour, it was only when I ventured away from literal points of reference that I began to discover the visceral impact to be enjoyed in the luminance, shapes and hues of glorious nature. If you see something you like that has sold, I am happy to paint something similar as a commission, so please just get in touch.
