It’s a pleasure to shine a light on this collection of exceptionally beautiful mixed media artworks by local artist Caroline Hiron.

Caroline uses different materials to produce highly complex pattern work which she fuses with her observations of the natural world. We love the results!

We asked the artist…

How would you describe your work?
My work is most definitely mixed media and usually starts with my photography. The photographs that I take are often the background of the artwork. This then evolves instinctively into a highly patterned and textured final image using a combination of different mediums.

What inspires you?
Primarily I am inspired by nature but this is always seen through the elements of pattern, colour and texture. I am constantly looking for these things, especially in the natural environment. Although not always consciously I am influenced by Asian cultures, their artists and in particular their use of pattern.

What materials do you generally use?
I use a mixture of mediums including photography, Pebeo prisme and vitrail through a pipette, Posca pens, embroidery threads (machine and hand) and always finished with rhinestones/vintage style stones.

What has been your favourite project to work on so far?
Probably like a lot of artists my favourite project is always the one that I am working on right now. I trained as a printed textile designer and as an artist, I still work in collections. My ideas evolve as I develop each piece in the collection.

What are you currently working on?
I have become obsessed with birds and their place in nature. The birds have become a representation of the human race and the frightening future that lies ahead for our beautiful world. The birds in my artwork take on positive human characteristics as I am an eternal optimist!

Where can we find more of your work?
