Biography:

Carol's love of wildlife is evident in her beautifully detailed work. It can be seen in many galleries including the National Gallery in London. Her work has been exhibited in Europe, America and Japan. Carol has also worked to commission for both public and private collections. Carol's collection includes small scale silversmithing objects, jewellery, decorative boxes, sculptures and paper knives.

Carol's work is made from silver that is initially textured with punches and stamps. Her work is then patinated and polished. This process enhances her work and brings it to life. Carol has always been fascinated with the idea of "A Cabinet Of Curiosities" and likes to follow the Victorian tradition of incorporating animals in her work. A tongue in cheek sense of humour also makes Carol's work unique.
