A sandy path leads to the sea in this work by artist Caroline Atkinson. Mounted in a wood-effect frame.
Caroline Atkinson was born in Exmouth in Devon in 1965. Encouraged by her family and art teacher, she embarked on a painting career from an early age. After studying Fine Art at Bristol Polytechnic, she travelled the UK and some of the world in constant pursuit of visual stimulation and varied cultural experiences. She combined her painting with a catering career to fund her travels.
By this time, her family had settled in West Cornwall and eventually the lure of this beautiful county proved so strong that Caroline came to settle in the world-renowned artistic community of St Ives. Its peninsula location is bathed in direct, bright light which is reflected in the aqua seas. Warmed by the tropical Gulf Stream and, conversely, hosting dramatic incoming Atlantic breakers, the town has attracted artists for generations. Famous names such as Barbara Hepworth, Bernard Leach, Patrick Heron and Terry Frost created their masterpieces here, inspired by the dramatic surroundings. The area is framed by spectacular black rock cliffs topped with lush vegetation and decorated with secret white sand coves. Ancient fisherman's cottages line the intimate cobbled streets which lead to the bustling quayside, sheltering the boats of its thriving fishing community. Against this backdrop, Caroline creates vivid and poignant paintings, expressing her understanding of and experiences within her surroundings, conveying the visual and emotional relationship to the viewer.
