Pauline is unafraid of experimenting in new ways of producing artwork, which has allowed her work to develop outside the confines of convention and enabled her to produce works of true originality. Using traditional methods of painting Paulines' Grand Prix series has been very successful. Pauline was a finalist of the “UK Liberte d' Expession Competition” and exhibited in Montreal in 2006 to coincide with the Grand Prix.

The series has also been published as illustrations in the Petro Canada calendar and North East Scotlands Magazine for New Writing “Pushing out the Boat”.

Her work has also been used in calenders and web based advertisements. Pauline draws her inspiration from her life in west Wales, her past work in the agricultural sector working within the changing landscape, weather and rhythm of the rural way of life. Some of her works have been inspired by the folklore and history of the surrounding communities tempered by her personal experiences and emotions. Paulines' artwork provokes thought and stimulates conversation, ideal for the collector, modern home or innovative business.
