Carolyn Pavey

Carolyn Pavey paints mainly in oils or acrylic with mixed media. Having originally trained as an illustrator at Brighton University the rigorous training Carolyn received in drawing and painting has been the mainstay of her work ever since.

She is inspired by many aspects of everyday life, the English countryside and the beaches near her home on the Isle of Wight, to literature, song lyrics and gardens.

Life is a gift to be explored. I view the world in terms of colour and line, and if my paintings sometimes make people smile with me along the way, then that is a bonus.
