Caroline Sabin studied Fine Art in Brighton graduating 1st class, then completed a postgraduate degree in choreography at the University of Amsterdam. The following twelve years were spent creating and performing with a wide range of companies and directors including Greg Nash, Peter Greenaway, Dario Fo, Earthfall Marc Rees, Sean Tuan John, James Williams, Eddie Ladd, Gerald Tyler, Mr and Mrs Clark, Volcano, Willi Dorner, Joanna Young, Lea Anderson and National Theatre Wales. In 2007 she returned to making her own work (most recently A Curious Zoo and Blood on the Snow) which has shown internationally. She has two short films (Rest/Full and Tune for a Woodland Creature) in the permanent collection of the Film House of the National Library. In 2014 she received a Creative Wales award.

Alongside her art practice Caroline has studied Chinese medicine and bodywork in depth – with seven years of continuous training and twelve years of clinical practice. She specialises in anxiety and depression, having a personal experience of those states and the practical ways forwards into a healthier and happier engagement with oneself and the world. She also studies Zen meditative practices and spends one to three months each year in solitary retreat observing her mind, its stillness and its activities. With her hard won experiential understanding of the difference between mind in its natural state (content and creative) and the mental chatter that so often occupies that space in unhelpful ways, she can guide others towards finding this understanding for themselves.
