Born 1960, Caroline Yates is a graduate of Central St Martins and The Royal College of Art. She also studied fine art printmaking at Camberwell before beginning to paint full time in 2000. During this period she has exhibited internationally.
After moving to Deal on the Kent coast seven years ago, and in light of current issues, she has explored natural and psychological borders; the joy of entering the sea and reassurance emerging from it; the perception of an element, simultaneously benign and therapeutic, and capricious and dangerous. The notion of travelling and being escorted or guided safely by entities outside our perceived world also feature.
Although Caroline is probably best known for her 'crowd paintings', she is now looking at a response to crowds in their environment; for example family gatherings or school with The Maths Lesson and The History Lesson.
