PASTEL paintings by a Dorchester artist are on show at a new free exhibition at the Dorset County Museum.

The works of Carolyn Fields, who lives in the county town but was born in Singapore and brought up in Scotland, will be on display at the museum until June 21.

Carolyn is a science teacher but spends much of her spare time painting with her works featuring many of Dorset’s most recognisable landmarks such as Portland Bill, Kimmeridge Bay and Durdle Door.

Her paintings will be on show in the museum’s tea room and every piece will be for sale.
