Living on the edge of a beautiful and historic village of Penhurst. Caroline married a local lad whose family has lived there for over four generations. Family history shows that they were mostly farmers with hops growing along the Warren Farm as far back as the mid-1800s until 1949. The Faircloth family would have known the local brewery (Larkins) which still grows hops and produces fantastic beer locally as well as far afield.
Her Hop Pocket Artwork designs are based on the original stencilled hop pockets, which date back as far as 1744. Hop pockets were used to store and transport hops to the local breweries and, in those days, to the Hop Exchange London. Caroline pays great care and attention to each piece of artwork, ensuring the warm tones and historical features are as relevant now as they were back then.
From Country to Contemporary Living
Her love and passion for Art is always thoughtful, considered and reflects the very latest in colour tones, design, and graphic trends. Intuitively this Hop Pocket Artwork has allowed her to bring an impressionistic feel and energy to art, and this is what you see today.
