Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play.
Play to make sense of the world
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct.”
- Carl Jung
Always stay connected to the art child inside you
“Play is the royal road to childhood happiness and adult brilliance.”
- Joseph Chilton Pearce

Hi, I’m Pauline
I’m an artist and art teacher, living in Ireland and I am passionate about art and creativity.
Why? Because, for me, being creative is a basic human given,available to everyone, and an essential part of being engaged in life in a meaningful way. When we make art we feel more alive, playful,and grounded. We become more capable of expanding our comfort zone, actively open to possibilities and risk. I love creating and sharing what art as a practise does for me and can do for others.If you have time,please take a look at my online portfolio where you can see the subjects that interest me as an artist,subjects like the human form:
“The human form in its strength and vulnerability,and how that can be captured in the hold of a head, the look in an eye,the arch of a back, or the stoop of a shoulder, fascinates me.
I am interested in figurative art and contemporary portraiture. Landscape also interests me, especially the way weather alters how I see it,that constantly changing relationship I have emotionally to it.
Everything is connected,the body is a landscape and I love the shifting emotional weather that it encapsulates.
Life is constant change, this I do know!”

I have never painted figuratively before, so this was very new territory for me, but I soon discovered that Pauline had made a very supportive online learning environment, where everyone no matter what level, got the feedback and support that they needed.
With this Ecourse my drawing has been enriched with beautiful color and paint and wonderful ideas to create. I feel so rich now with a sparkling treasure chest available for me to open again and again at any time.
