Caroline's artistic process uncovers hidden aspects of abstract imagery that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. Her paintings transcend conventional representation, granting abstract forms the freedom to exist independently and convey their own narratives. Through the interplay of shapes, colours, and textures, she creates a captivating visual language that beckons viewers to immerse themselves in the enigmatic beauty she portrays.
