Caroline Bays portrait of DeeCaroline paints almost exclusively in oils, bringing a fresh eye to the various subjects she undertakes, including portraits, landscapes and still life painting, which she elevates on to a new plane.

Her work is distinguished by a calm meditative quality, and although echoing the work of 20th century painters as diverse as Morandi, Uglow and Fedden, it is entirely her own, hard won in form and detail.

She regularly exhibits with The Royal Society of Portrait Painters and is a member of the ‘Pastel Society’.

She has been shortlisted for the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize Exhibition 2013, The Hunting Prize, The Discerning Eye and The Garrick Milne Prize with her portrait of Bernard Cribbins.

Caroline shows her work in galleries in London and the provinces and has her work in private collections all over Europe.
