Capturing beautiful moments and etching the sensations and sense of place to memory.
Landscape artist Caroline Matthews has been fascinated by the woodlands near to her home for as long as she can remember. She says that the trees she observes in places such as Trent Park and Epping Forest are 'awe inspiring, as a life source, and as humbling markers of time that stretch beyond our lifespans.’
Matthews makes paintings and drawings in her North London studio, to 'capture beautiful moments and etch the sensations and sense of place to my memory.' Matthews observes and records colour with expertise, as the seasons change, and the effect of light as it squeezes through tightly tangled branches.
Having specialised in Art and Art Education at King Alfred’s College Winchester, Matthews worked as a teacher before deciding in recent years to dedicate her time fully to making art.
