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.
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 portfolio where you can see the subjects that interest me as an artist, subjects like the human form and landscape:

The body is a landscape and I love the shifting emotional weather that it encapsulates .
The landscape, and especially the way weather alters how I see and experience it, are the two enduring themes that I constantly re-visit and love to draw and paint.
Everything is connected.

“I can vouch for Pauline Agnew’s amazing ability to connect with students and to get the most amazing work out of them! Whether you’ve done courses before or are a novice, you will surprise yourself at what appears under your hand and before your eyes! Seriously, think of giving this a go. She’s a Star from West Cork and a delight! You get so much for your money here and there’s no pressure, other than that you want to ride on her wave of skill, joy and enthusiasm for art”
