Caren studied fashion at the University of Salford before beginning work in the fashion industry where she designed many items of clothing for both women and children. A break from her career reawoke Caren's passion for art, where she began experimentation with textile art.
Her work features a variety of mediums including wool and silk to create stunning pieces of art that depict landscapes, flowers and fauna. Caren also creates work in other textiles including batiks and paintings using silk.
Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Cumbria and Lancashire, as well as in Manchester.
