ABOUT

Caroline's love of fibre has been instilled through the talented female generations of her family.  She has recently turned her attention to clay, exploring the relationship between the two mediums.  To gain more insight on how to meld the two slow crafts, she studied at Northern Beaches TAFE, completing her Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts (Ceramics) in 2018 and 2020, respectively.  Her ceramic work forms showcase the amazing ability of clay to highlight the knitted and crocheted stitches.

A regular exhibitor at the Northern Beaches TAFE yearly exhibitions from 2015 to 2020.  Caroline has also shown her knitted and crocheted work at "The Fernery" in Newcastle's Islington, Craft NSW in The Rocks Sydney and Macleay Regional Art Gallery on the Mid North Coast.  The group show at "The Shop Gallery" Glebe in October 2020, "Reshaped" provided an opportunity to showcase her major work for 2020, where the shadow of slow stitches took the form of light shades, vessels and 'hard hats'.

Caroline's ceramic work "Knitted Gem" was selected as finalist for the 2020 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, exhibition date September 2021.

Caroline is a Co-Director of Crackpot Studios and Gallery located at 20 Lawrence Street Freshwater NSW.

Her work is available through Crackpot Gallery
