Carole Hutchings

Carole is a North East artist working from her studio in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

Carole works in a mixed media of soft pastel and gouache and has created a series of powerful images of the steel works, South Gare and River Tees estuary, collectively named ‘Ore-inspired’ which have a gritty and ethereal quality.

The tactile nature of the pastel medium and the blending of the layers with the fingertips, for her, enhances an emotional bond to the work.

‘Through my work, I aim to challenge potential negative expectations of this region and portray a unity between man and nature.’
