Caroline Ritson lives in Oxfordshire. She exhibits widely including Oxfordshire Artweeks and in many private collections internationally.

Although I mainly paint seascapes and landscapes, I was thrilled to be chosen to paint one of the oxen for OxTrail and I wanted to paint something related to Oxford. Alice in Wonderland was my inspiration. I hope people will enjoy finding all of the characters.


After the trail ends, most of the life-sized oxen (and a selection of mini oxen) will be sold at a hoof-biting live auction to raise crucial funds for Sobell House Hospice.

The lucky new owners will then take their moo-gnificent ox to its forever home.
