Carol lives and works at the Dovecot Studio, in Edinburgh and has been a wildlife artist for more than 35 years, spending time in Africa studying her subject in its natural habitat and learning as much as possible about the wildlife from local guides, animal experts and conservationists.
Carol has been a committed conservationist since she became a wildlife artist. She is passionate about animals and is now giving 100% of her art sales to support conservation work, particularly to help endangered wildlife.
All of her artwork is inspired from source material, done in situ on field trips to a number of different African countries and Australia
