It came as no surprise to Caroline's artistic family (her grandfather was a painter, her father a writer and her uncle a sculptor) when, at the age of 18 years, French-born Caroline d'Andlau also announced her desire to become a sculptor. First, her love of shape and form was initially satisfied by a 12 years career in restoration of antique porcelain. Finally Caroline enrolled herself on the local authority's sculpting course. Her initial success came from the sale of castings of her work to friends and acquaintances visiting her home.Such has been the positive feedback that sculpting is now a full-time passion and occupation.
She is now permanently "represented" by "Plus One Gallery" in Pimlico and "Bernard Chauchet" Gallery, in Hollywood Road, London. Caroline exhibitis works at Art Bridge in Cork Street, London. She has also recently joined a new group in Basingstoke Hampshire run by Amanda Aldous. For the last 10 years, she has participated in most of the London Art Fairs, such as Art London and others.
Her work has been sold internationally. It is mostly cast at the the "Fiorini" foundry in London and "Pengolin" foundry in Gloucestershire.
Inspired by masters such as Marino Marini and Henry Moore, Caroline's work comprises original, linear, bronze female nudes, animals and figured groupings, such as Massai warriors. Foxes running, hares dancing, warriors engaged in a rhythmic ritual. Her figures are usually depicted in movement, elegant and light.
