Caroline Bowles

Caroline was born in Wicklow, grew up in Kerry and now lives on the Cork/Waterford border area. She has pursued many interests, including performing as a professional harpist and practising as a trained acupuncturist, having studied in Dublin and Nanjing, China. Caroline studied animation in Ballyfermot Senior College and more recently graduated the Crawford College of Art and Design, with a degree in Fine Arts.

Caroline has exhibited in 2021 in the The Crawford Art Gallery as part of the Fine Art Degree, Art and Context project, in 2022 at The Glucksman Gallery Femfest Exhibition and in 2023 at the Lavit Quay Members Exhibition.

Caroline loves to travel and experience new cultures, to discover new dream places and sources of
inspiration. Books, poems, music, the work of artists especially Cezanne, Matisse, Edith Godwin, Zao
Wou Ki, and Qi Bashi are all important fuel for her art making. Caroline enjoys connecting with other artists
and working on collaborative projects.
