Caroline was born in Guernsey in the Channel Islands and brought up in Malta in the Mediterranean. Her wish to become an internationally acclaimed artist materialised after she followed a Bachelor in Fine Arts at the National Art School in Sydney. She was chosen to take part in a mural project as part of the Sydney Olympics which led to her being chosen as the artist to represent Malta as part of the CHOGM (Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting) in 2002. Subsequently she has exhibited worldwide at the United Nations in New York, central London at the Commonwealth Society and Harrods, Paris at the Montmatre Town Hall, Seville Spain and an Art Symposium in Italy.
Caroline’s works can be found in Italy at the Pescara Contemporary Art Museum and in private collections in London, Australia, Malta, Spain, France, Germany, Croatia, Slovakia, Switzerland, Japan, and the US. She has also managed her own private gallery, Space Contemporary Art, part of the Hilton complex in Malta and has been part of the special effects department for the Blockbuster movie “Troy”. Caroline is part of an active life drawing and sculpture movement in Malta.
Her greatest inspiration is the sea. Caroline’s love for sailing can be seen through her vibrant seascapes often depicting regattas. Rolex commissioned her to create prize-giving trophies in 2005 & 2006 for the renowned Malta Middle Sea Yacht Race. She is an active member of the Slow Food Movement and has worked as a freelance yacht chef for the past 10 years fueling her sense of adventure and love for good food. Yacht cheffing has enabled her to travel extensively through the Far East, the east coast of the US, the Caribbean, the Adriatic and much of the Mediterranean where she has captured many of these memories on canvas. Only recently she has completed a Master in Tourism with studies focused on yachting.
Caroline likes to apply her artistic flair to include art exhibitions, food fairs and yachting events such as hosting the prestigious classic yacht regatta, from St. Tropez to Malta, the “Trophee Bailli de Suffren”.
