CHURCH LANE GALLERY
Caroline Nixon, Artist
Caroline works with natural dyes and botanical contact printing ( ecoprinting ) to produce wearable art, wall art and home textiles. Working from her garden studio in Long Compton, Warwickshire, she captures the beauty of nature using the pigments and imprints of the leaves themselves – no synthetic ink, dyes or silk screens are involved. Leaves and dyes come from sustainable sources – many are grown in her own garden. The textiles used are natural fibres, organically produced and ethically sourced wherever possible. Vintage textiles are also upcycled, giving them a new lease of life. Despite the natural process, the textiles are permanent and washable.
