Caroline Said Lawrence is a painter living in Birgu. On The Trail she will be demonstrating her creative process and running workshops with live models, together with fellow Trail artist Jeni Caruana.
Upon leaving school Caroline attended St. Martin’s School of Art in London, fully intending to pursue a career in art. However, after instead moving to join her family in Bahrain, it was not until almost twenty years later when her four children were growing up that she was able to start her career as a professional artist.
Her first exhibition in Bahrain in 1992 was a great success, and subsequent shows in Bahrain and Dubai proved to be equally rewarding.
In 2002 she settled in Cospicua where her father’s family originated from, and like in the Middle East once again found herself immersed in a landscape full of brilliant colour. The Maltese landscape has inspired Lawrence to produce mixed-media paintings of its magnificent vistas, and a new series of paintings depicting the magical antiquity of The Three Cities.
