Showcase of Contemporary Miniature Art

Caroline Hayes HS, RMS - British Miniature Painter


I was trained as a pianist, studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London. After I finished college, I joined the BBC where I worked in program planning for Radio 3. I spent five years as assistant administrator of the Brighton Festival, before retiring [early] from full time work and moving to Winchester. This left time to rediscover my interest in painting. I discovered miniature art initially through a study of calligraphy. I have been very much influenced by the Moghul miniature painters of India, the illuminators of the Winchester Bible, and the creators of the Disney animated features. I like my pictures to tell a story and aim to get both movement and light into my painting.

In the last few years I have made annual trips to Russia in order to attend workshops on icon painting, and the painting of lacquer miniatures.
