Caroline Doney is an artist based here in Port Seton. She studied ceramics at Cardiff College of Art then a post-graduate degree in Theatre Design.
Since graduating she has lived all over the UK and Australia. Working extensively as a Scenic Artist in the TV, Film and Theatre industries.
Since moving to Port Seton, Caroline became inspired by the seascapes and the ever-changing colours and textures. The tide marks especially which are left behind on the harbour walls, uninteresting and ignored by many but which can be full of hidden depths…
The paintings are achieved using layers of acrylic texture. Then washes of paint, glazes and polishes are applied in layers. Encouraging the paints to move freely then dry slowly is an important part, allowing the image to develop its own integrity.
