Carolyn Shepherd


Carolyn says her art is about continuity.

Her art practice is an experiment with materials & processes.  She destroys materials in order to transform them, so they become stronger or more beautiful after the trauma.

Carolyn says this is a metaphor for life.

Her sculptures include burnt wood, cut paper, burnt photographs. They are made in a ritualistic process of destruction & renewal.

Carolyn's work has been exhibited & sold internationally.

Between 2012-2017 she became deeply involved in facilitating art in the community. This all-consuming passion gained her recognition & acclaim for her achievement and contribution to the arts. 

Carolyn graduated with First Class Honours in Fine Art followed by a Post Graduate Certificate in Fine Art and a Masters Degree in Arts & Media. She also holds a Masters Degree in Business & IT with distinction from a previous career in consultancy.

Carolyn now runs Beach Gallery on the stunning island of Hoy, where she lives next to an idyllic beach in peaceful seclusion.
