Carolyn graduated from Camberwell College of Arts with a BA(Hons) Ceramics in 1998. Since then, she has mixed making her own work with various teaching appointments. Carolyn currently teaches at and helps to run a social enterprise in North London working with adults recovering from and living with mental health illness.

Carolyn's current body of work takes inspiration from a small Chinese style bottle given to her in childhood. She enjoys the freedom of its maker to mix up pattern, creating vibrant and accidental surfaces and she applies this to her thrown porcelain vessels . Some are quire usable, others a visual treat. Using the traditional process of underglaze decoration, Carolyn hopes to create pieces to look at and to treasure.
