    Hi, my name is Caroline Strong. I live and grew up next to the South Downs in Hampshire, one of many beautiful parts of this country. I paint mostly in Watercolour the countryside,flowers,buildings and wildlife around me.I am willing to travel and undertake commissions in Watercolour or Acrylic. Contact me with your requirements. I trained as a Cartographic Draughtsman in the late 1970's and so have an eye for detail and actually enjoy the challenge of painting scenes with perspective! I paint realistically but use techniques so as not to over work my paintings. I aim to acheive light and atmosphere in my paintings. My work has been exhibited locally in Hampshire and W.Sussex and I have work in Galleries in Hampshire, Dorset and the Orkney Islands, and have exhibited in Guildford, Surrey. I resigned from Cartography due to it becoming mostly computerised,and having a young family in the mid 1990's. I retrained and became deputy supervisor of a pre-school for five years and then left to further my painting opportunities. In September 2007 I started to teach a weekly Watercolour painting class for beginners at Liphook,( where I grew up )and in June 2008 extended this to an extra improvers class also in Liphook.For these classes I make sure I do lots of demos to actually show how to acheive techniques. I started a Watercolour class in my home town of Petersfield after Easter 2009. I was approached by Grayshott Art Society in July 2008 to become their tutor which I accepted.I teach a morning class and an aftrnoon class and am enjoying working with and teaching all media.Each half term a new theme/subject is explored.Different media is used to paint and/or draw the theme/subject. I was also the Programme Secretary and Workshop Secretary for Bramshott and Liphook Art and Crafts Society and I am a member of Petersfield Art and Crafts Society. I have had 4 paintings accepted by the United Society of Artists for their exhibition at the Menier Gallery, London, May 2011 I was awarded 'overall winner' of the Art Profile/ Jackson's Art Supplies/ Shin Han paints competition in May 2011
