Yandina Creek Qld
Painting people is how I celebrate humankind and each person’s uniqueness, and I paint people as a tribute to our Creator.
My figure works have been described as being more evocative, rather than provocative.
“Each and every person has their own individual beauty, outside and inside….. they are in themselves great masterpieces of creation!
I’m basically self-taught (a work-in-progress!), taking inspiration from old masters as well as modern day artists…. I live for art. I love to look at it, and I love to create it.”
Born in New Zealand, Pauline moved to Sydney, Australia where she worked as the Advertising Manager of a national retail chain for 20 years. Relocation to Queensland meant that her long postponed passion for art could be given some attention, nurtured, and brought to life.
Pauline has written and contributed articles to several artists’ forums and creative sites on the World Wide Web. She mentors student artists from all over the world and has collectors for her paintings in Italy, France, England, Ireland, America, Russia, Finland, Germany, Holland, Cyprus, Singapore, New Zealand & Australia.
Pauline tutors many workshops locally and interstate: Portraits, Life Drawing, Figure drawing and painting – in many mediums – Pastels, Oils, Ink & Watercolours.
“I love my painting, teaching and mentoring, and I paint every single day if I possibly can….. I don’t want to go to my grave with my paintings still inside me!”
