Caroline's work is a means to express the fragility and transience of life; a very personal response to recovery from illness in 2004. Caroline works predominantly in wild open places such as the highlands of Scotland, New Zealand's south island and around Camber Sands and Dungeness. Using multiple exposure and in-camera movement alongside conventional techniques she express the moods and emotions that she experiences in the outdoor world.
Making hand made artist books is another way of presenting her work.
She values the of the sentiments of John Muir, the Scottish adventurer who said "everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul ".
