Carolyn Harrington



Carolyn Harrington’s diverse works in acrylics are the manifestations of rich and varied life experiences starting in the NSW Riverina rice belt, on to African village life and then to Northern European cultures.

Carolyn commenced her formal training at RMIT, gaining a Diploma in Arts with a specialisation in fashion. She continued to develop her art while travelling in Africa and Europe and eventually living in London before returning to Victoria in 2002 where she now lives on the Mornington Peninsula.

Previously focusing on acrylics, Carolyn now also works with mixed media and varied techniques. These include loose washes, thick impasto paint applied with palette knives, charcoal, oil sticks, inks and collage. Through these media she continues here theme of playing with colour, texture and tone.

She has successfully exhibited around the Peninsula as well as at art shows across Victoria and NSW where her work has been widely awarded.
