Caroline Erolin - Printmaker

Hi, I'm Caroline Erolin, a printmaker working out of my home studio in the countryside near Carnoustie, Scotland. I am inspired by nature, my love of animals, and my career as a lecturer in medical art. My prints tend to include animal subjects, often with an anatomical twist. My work alternates between colourful reduction prints and more stark monochrome pieces. Many of my prints feature creatures that are often overlooked such as insects and amphibians. My monochrome work in particular tends to be slightly darker in mood, often referring to the cycle of life and death, depicting both the living animal and its skeleton.

I work in a variety of traditional print media including linocut, etching, and wood engraving. All works are handmade with traditional processes.
