ARTISANS IN BEARWOOD

You may be surprised that Bearwood was originally an Artisan community, but how much of this creativity is in Bearwood today?.

Mosaic Artist Caroline Jariwala has lived in Bearwood for many years – she’s well known for her enthusiasm and bubbly, energetic personality ’round these parts.

Her artistic career started in the 1980s when she studied Fine Art. 2014 has been a big year for Caroline – started with a trip to the 1st International Urban Mosaic Intervention in Santiago, Chile, which Caroline was especially selected to take part in.  In April she had a major exhibition at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester which was incredibly well received.
