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!”
