Painting since childhood, Caroline Shotton grew up on the outskirts of London raised by her Grandmother. She was inspired by the surrounding countryside, immersing herself in her work even as a child. During her school years Shotton was strongly influenced by the old master painters, she went on to study Art at Central Saint Martin's and became further
captivated by surrealism and impressionism, her current work often combining these two areas.
Upon graduation, Shotton became a freelance artist in the commercial industry, taking on many commissions from businesses across the country. When her son was born, Shotton decided to focus on her gallery career,
working on it ever since.
Shotton's work is parodical, drawing humour to the old masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa, the Girl with the Pearl Earring and many others. She uses an interesting cow design in nearly all of her works, creating
a strong sense of comedy within the entire collection.
