Carolyn Bew is an artist and educator based in Brighton, UK.


She works both as a painter and drawer, supporting a practice that depicts both people and animals - often in absurd, or unsettling situations. The animus is primarily concerned with the dynamic and emotionally charged landscape of childhood and the complexity of family relationships. Her work is indebted to mark-making and gesture, always returning to an expressionistic handling of materials.


Carolyn has a studio at Phoenix Art Space, where she also teaches life drawing.
