Her work reflects her particular delight in quiet detail and her historical understanding of letterforms, her respect for letters and words, and a love of literature and landscape. Caroline particularly enjoys designing formal Ecclesiastical inscriptions and and is one of a handful of letter carvers specialising in carving fine lettering in wood for both small intimate pieces and larger scale projects. For many years she collaborated with Ian Hamilton Finlay contributing numerous works to exhibitions and collections.
