First things first, how did you get started as an artist?
Caron – As a teenager, I sometimes worked with my father who had his own hand-painted furniture business (he also made paintings in his spare time). I did a Mature Students Foundation Art Course at my local college, which led me to do a Fine Art Degree Course in Exeter.
Gordon – It’s in my blood… I am half Dutch – there are artists, photographers and designers in the family. I was taught by an inspirational art teacher at school. I then studied art at university and went on to be an art and design lecturer and departmental head in colleges for 20 years.
