I arrived there an hour after she had closed her doors to visitors, but she kindly opened her shutters and reorganised the rooms to replicate what visitors had seen during the day. Caroline was cooking tea when I arrived, so the children and husband looked a bit surprised I'd come so late.
I'm going to start with the last photograph I took because it gives you a great idea of Caroline's personality. At 6pm she can welcome me into her home and stand in her studio and give a welcoming smile; and this is the point of open studios, not to arrive late, but it's a meet the artist.
