I was commissioned to paint Alex van Straubenzee by his son Tom for Alex’s 60th. Alex and I had such fun creating this portrait together.

“I have never had a portrait painted of me before, so I was worried about a long sitting. Caroline put me at ease immediately and the whole exercise was so easy. Probably the most welcome part was her ability to change certain facial features, that weren’t quite right, without any fuss and with delightful enthusiasm. I am so pleased with the final result.” Alex van Straubenzee
