Carol’s textile work reflects her background as a lacemaker. She makes and studies contemporary lace and uses it as a medium for conceptual work. Carol is currently studying the net curtain as part of her research for a practice based PhD at University for the Creative Arts Farnham, where she also completed her MA. She is using the net curtain to re-read the relationship between the uncanny, the gothic and the domestic. Carol exhibits internationally and her work is held in private collections. More information about her work can be found on her website www.carolquarini.com and at www.transitionandinfluence.com.
