Carole Shepheard studied at the University of Auckland Elam School of Fine Art in the 1960’s majoring in Stage Design and later received a Doctorate of Fine Arts. Shepheard's describes her work as feminist.
“The work revolves around the re-interpretation of historical, domestic, and cultural objects. Through her prints she used symbols and images of the body in a consciously feminist way. Her use of materials draws on her feminist reflections on the role of women, specifically in the home. In her early years as an artist she concentrated on small- scale, often modular pieces, that utilised women's traditional arts, including stitching, quilting, batik, and weaving. From the mid–1970s she expanded to drawings, collages, etchings, and prints.“
