Welcome

Carole Vincent - Artist and SculptorCarole Vincent is an artist working in concrete. She lives and works in Boscastle, Cornwall.

Painter as well as sculptor, she has explored the use of natural colour and texture in concrete for sculpture. Her work with pigments has achieved remarkable success, opening new doors to architects, engineers and planners. Carole is currently running spring and summer courses in painting, drawing and sculpture ( Details of new courses for 2013 can be found on the 'Courses in Concrete' page) and you can see a review of one of her latest courses here.

Images (February 2011) of Carole's commission 'Michael's Seat' can be found on her 'Small Works' page.

Her large scale commissions include:

The Sundial in Plymouth City Centre

The Pedestrians in Devon

Quartet in Glasgow

Colloquy in Singapore

Les Jongleurs in Jersey

The Red Carpet in Edinburgh

The Bude Light 2000

The Blue Circle Garden at the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower
. Show in 2001

La Citadelle in Jersey

Sea Stack in Alderney

The highly polished surfaces of her work reveal texture, form and colour with all the time - proven assets of concrete: flexibility, strength, durability and resistance to vandalism and graffiti. She likes to work to commission for specific environments, ranging from public spaces to individual buildings and gardens.

Carole is supported by many in the concrete industry: she is a fellow of The Concrete Society, her show garden at chelsea was sponsored by Blue Circle Industries (now Lafarge); the Concrete Centre used her expertise in courses at the Royal College of Art, and the British Cement Association has promoted her work for many years. In 2005 it sponsored a major retrospective exhibition, Concrete Works, in the Jubilee Gallery of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
