Caroline Dilworth is the creator of Les Papillons painting little Irish landscapes that can be worn. She shares her home with her family...who often feel outranked by two much-loved dogs, a terribly spoiled, but splendid, cat and a geriatric pony.
Caroline began to paint professionally 10 years ago, when she moved to Scotland. She fell in love with the huge open skies and the wildness of the moors and hills. Caroline was surrounded by horses, so began painting them.
She took some paintings to a framers and one exhibition led to another. Soon
Caroline was painting Trick Riding/TV stunt horses, as well as taking on commissions.
However, the call of home brought Caroline back to Northern Ireland and after an operation to cure arthritis she found she could no longer hold a pallet knife or large brush, so started to paint miniatures to attach to jewellery findings. And so began Les Papillons.
Caroline still loves to paint skies and the natural landscape, sparkling eyes of our fauna. In a time when we take more photographs than ever before, there are very few actually printed and even less framed. For this reason she feels that we need art to capture a place and to capture the atmosphere of that place which captured the soul.
