Caroline Coode is an artist and printmaker widely recognised for her vibrant and distinctive work.             Her prints are in public collections throughout Britain

and also in Germany

 

During her forty two year career, she has exhibited extensively in solo and joint exhibitions with other artists.

 

Caroline was the organizer of 'NAMASTE' Nepal - Britain art exchange which toured Galleries and Arts Centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Nepal over a two year period.

 

Landscape, natural forms, water and light are the subjects on which my work is based.  I believe these interests stem from my earliest childhood memories of the high Cotswolds and seaside holidays in Dorset.

My Nanny and my parents were all keen gardeners and nature lovers and I readily absorbed their enthusiasms which continue to this day.                                                

           

In my work, I use a variety of printmaking techniques: collagraph; lino etching and cutting; wood engraving;

acetate drypoint; mono-printing and collage.

I have recently extended my practice to include hand-made books and paper constructions with printed elements. This work is inspired by my passion for growing organic fruit and vegetables on my allotment.

 

I am a Quaker and this influences the way I live my life and think about the world - including sustainability and care of the environment.  

'We do not own the world and its riches are not ours to dispose of at will.'
