Raised as an only child by her grandmother on the outskirts of London, Caroline Shotton grew a passion for painting from an early age. With the benefits of nearby London galleries as well as the open countryside, she found the opportunity to completely immerse herself into her work, encouraged and guided by her grandmother.
After the birth of her son, Caroline decided to focus on her gallery career, moving away from the strict briefs and allowing her work to develop using ideas from past commissions. This also enables her to paint in the direction of her choice.
Caroline Shotton gets her inspiration from various sources such as pages out of a magazine or the look a her of cows gave
her when she went past that morning. Always looking for ways to capture an image or effects, Caroline is constantly scribbling down ideas or taking photographs to which she can refer to throughout the day or the year. Inspiration hits her when she least expects it and when she isn’t consciously thinking about her paintings. But anything from the way the light reflects on her son’s hair or the decaying plasterwork of a disused shop front is an inspiration and a new challenge for Caroline to integrate into her work.
