‘Caroline Ross sources art materials from a world that ended a thousand years ago’ – Dark Mountain 11.
Welcome to my website. Here you’ll find some of my art and illustration, foraged and natural ancient materials, and details of workshops where I teach how to make materials and paints, as well as teaching crafts and drawing. Do get in touch via the contact page or find me on Instagram @foundandground.
News: From October 2018 I will be teaching regular life drawing sessions at Canela Café in Hampton Court, for details have a look here.
I created the painting for cover for Dark Mountain 13 which was published in May 2018. Have a look here for a short essay and great pictures of the great rocks on which I worked.
News: I will be co-teaching Wild Twins again in May 2019 with Paul Kingsnorth, a week for rewilding your art and / or your writing on Sherkin island on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland. Our May 2018 course was a grand event with much sunshine as well as a stormy night, wonderful walks, ancient ochres and songs around the fire. We’ll be making everything we need from scratch – inks, books, paints, pens, and responding to each other, to nature and to ancient stories. Click the link to find out more about dates, prices, and the venue Sherkin North Shore.
10 of my small works made in natural pigments on deerskin parchment illustrate Dark Mountain 12 – Sanctum. For the cover of issue 13, I used ochres hand-dug and refined into raw pigments from Clearwell Caves, as well as Italian red ochre, Oxfordshire’s hangman’s ochre, and English charcoal.
