Biography
Caroline Bailey studied Printed Textiles (B.A. Hons) at Manchester Polytechnic, graduating in 1975 where she also went on to study an M.A. in Textile Design. Caroline was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1998. She uses watercolour and acrylic to capture the essence of a place or object and is particularly attracted by the dramatic landscape of the Hebridean islands, which continue to provide a source of inspiration for her work.

In Caroline’s words:

My work is inspired by a love of land and sea and the footprints of human activity found where they meet. Although descriptive of the places I like, my paintings are not documentary but rather concerned with shape, colour and layering of textures. I hope to express something of the feel and atmosphere that I experience there. The painting, once begun, determines its own direction and its own conclusion
