Caron Buckingham-Rhyder

Painter and printmaker.
16 years ago I gave up my profession as an architect to pursue motherhood and to start a successful outdoor education business with my husband. Since then I have attended a number of short courses under the dynamic teaching of Piers Ottey (Mill Studio, Arundel) who gave me direction and practical grounding in painting and at West Dean College for printmaking.

I work with a number of mediums which can be paint, wood, wire and occasionally photography depending on how the mood takes me! The discipline of architecture and graphic design does influence a major part of my approach and how I respond to my subjects and I lean heavily towards equine, figurative and landscape as a source of inspiration. The geometry and colours I use have lots of meaning to me which is not always apparent at first glance!

I am no longer based at The Mill Studio but have moved back home to Cocking near Midhurst. Please contact me via info@artsoup.co.uk or call me on 07909995780.
