THE CAFÉ IN TOPSHAM – CAROLINE MORGAN
Throughout September I will be exhibiting my framed limited edition Giclée prints at The Café in Topsham where you can also enjoy a great coffee and a wide selection of lovely cakes! During Devon Open Studios (9-24 September) I will be at The Café each day 10.30 - 12.00, except Wednesdays 2.30 - 4.00. Please come and say hello! A selection of greeting cards will also be available for sale.
A little bit about myself:
I create each of my hand-cut collages in a small studio in my garden. Everything you see at The Café, no matter how simple it might look, tells a story that is personal to me.
My Scandinavian roots are clearly evident in my seascapes. Within the simple shapes lie memories of my Danish childhood: the house where I grew up right by the beach, long sunny summers, the changing sea, learning to sail, the colourful buoys, ropes and fishing nets, the smell of tar, the sound of clinking steel cables on masts, the white elegant sails, adventures in our small wooden boat, family and fun, the feeling of home, happiness…
I am also passionate about poetic storytelling and am especially fond of works with a message to make you think. In this exhibition, alongside my seascapes are some of my illustrations which carry a message.
