Caroline Mackintosh is a landscape and semi-abstract artist living and working in Suffolk. She is inspired by the Suffolk countryside as well as travelling further afield, in particular to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and the Lake District where she is drawn to the dramatic lines and strong shapes formed by shifts in light in the landscape. It is this play of light that inspires her to paint; her work acting as a visual diary. Caroline works in oils and more recently in oils and cold wax. She starts by creating works in ink, acrylic and other media which together with memories are developed into larger works. Caroline paints in layers and enjoys scratching back to find earlier layers and memories.
Caroline studied to foundation level at Norwich Art School (now NUA) and then for a BA in Development Studies at the UEA before going to live and work in Ireland where she trained as a puppet maker. She returned to England and worked as a primary school teacher in Norwich before moving to Suffolk.
She exhibits widely in Suffolk, and is gaining much recognition for her work receiving third prize at last year's UK Artists Annual Exhibition 2022 at Courtyard Gallery in Aldeburgh, Suffolk and being shortlisted for and exhibited at The Sir John Hurt Art Prize,Holt Festival 2021 and 2022.
