Caro Lester – ‘Lone Swimmer’ limited edition giclée print, 40cm x 40cm
Caro Lester’s printmaking and digital illustration work is a graphic, contemporary response to the Dorset coast. The colours, light, maritime plant-life and seaside architecture, and the people who inhabit it, create a unique sense of place that is always inspiring to her. She often works at Greenhill Beach & Gardens in Weymouth, Dorset. Her Garden Sketchbook is another ongoing project, full of artichokes, broccoli, fennel and nasturtiums.
Caro took an Art Foundation course in Bournemouth, then later studied Graphic Design & Multimedia. She now combines her art practice in her printmaking studio on Portland with graphic design work. This year, she has exhibited work with Dorset Visual Arts’ Salon group at Furleigh Estate near Bridport
