Carol is a mixed media textile artist who studied stitched textiles at the Isle of Man college,
after which she embarked on a textiles distance degree with the Open College of the Arts
which she will finish in March 2021. She works predominantly in 3D but also occasionally in
2D, finding much of her inspiration from family history.
Carol tends to use a mixture of textile techniques such as free motion machine embroidery,
hand stitching, applique and felt making in juxtaposition with other methods that are
further off the textile radar such as Papier-Mache. Continuing work inspired by family she
has recently collaborated with her grandson, interpreting his artwork and making figurative
sculptures that consist of Papier-Mache heads and soft bodies.
