Pauline is inspired by the landscape, bold bright colour and texture. Striving to create exciting and evocative paintings she paints in watercolour, acrylic, oil, brusho and alcohol inks. Using photographs and sketches taken on location, the medium chosen is derived from the way she feels about the subject matter as opposed to interpreting literally. This gives her the chance to put her own personal stamp on the subject. She passionately believes that painting comes from the heart, which is apparent in the emotion put into her paintings. Pauline has taught art in schools in Cheshire and North Wales for many years and now semi retired runs painting workshops and demonstrated for art clubs/societies along with in service training for teachers. She has taught watercolour painting on MV Minerva many times and also Saga’s Spirit of Adventure. She runs courses from her home near Chester, in Morillon, a resort near the Swiss Alps and also in Moraira, Spain.
