Encouragement of art in buckinghamshire

Caroline Selvey

Featured Artist: Caroline Selvey

Sculptor: Ceramics and Glass

With an extensive  teaching  career  in Art Caroline bit the bullet and set up a studio to become a full time sculptor modelling clay and creating fused glass pieces. After eight years of studio work the teaching has not been entirely abandoned and she still leads workshops for children and adults, ranging from early years to senior citizens, with groups varying from gifted and talented through to those with special needs. Projects are individual or designed to meet the needs of an organisation. Classes are run for adults at varying levels and Caroline often attends courses herself to learn new skills.

She is an active committee member of the Bucks Arts Society (BAS) and core member of Wycombe Court Artists (WCA) and  has exhibited at a number of locations throughout Bucks. At the BAS, she is responsible for the annual Young Artists Award which is open to all secondary schools in the area to encourage and reward  budding artists of the future. WCA holds annual summer and Christmas exhibitions and gives active support to charities such as the Air Ambulance and the South Bucks Hospice.

Caroline’s work is based on organic, human and animal forms for both indoor and outdoor display and she is at her happiest in her studio or when she smells from head to toe of an outdoor Raku firing that has produced some wonderful glazed effect.  In close third  place is her love of meeting with and encouraging everyone to enjoy their art.
