Florisma is an exhibition of large acrylic abstract paintings and ceramic vessels. The artist’s work is based on and painted in her Canberra garden in Spring and is a blaze of colour and energy.

The work aims to capture a feeling of vitality and lightness, of fecundity and change.

The Spring garden in Canberra came as a delightful change for Caroline, who is perhaps better known for her representational landscape work, when she returned from a residency in France.
