  • Biography

  • Caroline completed her BA (Hons) in Graphic and Media Design at the London College of Communication and holds an MA Information Experience Design from the Royal College of Art. She has also studied visual communication at École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués Duperré in Paris.

    For many years, she worked for Art Observed, an art magazine where she covered art events (including Art Basel, Venice Biennale, Frieze and Fiac) and interviewed various artists. She started her exhibition design practice when interning at the Museum of Modern Art (New York), and since then she has worked for Historical Royal Palaces, English Heritage and National Trust sites in the UK.

    As an artist, her work has been exhibited in France and the UK. The Exquisite Cabinet on show at the RCA Degree show was recently selected by Tim Marlow for the 2014 Noise Festival , with the work described as follows: ‘This seems to be where surrealism enters the digital age – a kind of post-modern cabinet of curiosities with narrative twists. Commendably ambitious and experiential’.

    During her studies, Caroline presented her research at various conferences in Europe, looking at how creative, participatory and tactile experiences can encourage visitors’ engagement and create new insights into artefacts on display. She also participated in different research projects using co-design, multimodal and art-based approaches.
