Caroline de Peyrecave SWA trained at the atelier of Charles H. Cecil – Florence, Italy. She works mainly from life by a technique called sight-size. The broad handling comes into focus when seen at the viewing distance. While her work belongs to this tradition, she tries to make it more interesting by pushing its boundaries and therefore hopefully giving it a contemporary edge.
Caroline has exhibited frequently in London, mainly at the Mall Galleries and locally in Bucks.
She takes regular commissions and has a lot of experience working with children.
Most recently asked by Halcyon Days to draw HRH Prince William and Catherine Middleton and has also painted the BTCC racing driver Tom Chilton.
She has been awarded the Sue Coombs Portraiture award by Princess Michael of Kent and the Caron Keating Award, presented by Gloria Hunniford at the Society of Women Artists annual exhibition.
Caroline also has work in private collections in Brussels, France and throughout the UK.
