Carole as been a finalist in several major portrait prizes and has work in private collections in the United States and in Australia. She currently divides her time betweer her work as an educator in a Sydney museum and her painting. Her favourite colour is black.

They have collaborated on four books: Dungeon dwellings [Champagne book], Dungeon dwellings #2, A dozen dungeon days, and Dungeon depths: two artists explore teh self-portrait. The first exhibition of their work, Mostra, was held in 1997 in Barga, Italy. Since then, they have had two more exhibitions together: Dungeon duo in 2000 and, in 2001, Brown is black.
