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.
