CAROLINE JORDAN

‘It would be hard to categorize my work as I have always enjoyed an eclectic mix or arts and crafts.  Although most of my earlier work focused on pastel landscapes, seascapes and still life, I moved to acrylics on canvas finding the medium was ideal to create large images of colourful flowers and abstract scenes inspired by my garden.

As a passionate re-cycler and collector I began creating 3D collage work from found objects.  I also attended evening classes in welding which I loved and established a small workshop in my studio making crosses, garden sculptures, and candle holders from old metal.  I have found the collage work and welding particularly exciting in expressing my faith as a Christian and pieces have been used often at Christian events and services across the country.  I work from my studio in Upton taking part annually in the Open Studios.  I am always trying different things and simply being creative.’
