Pauline moved from Vancouver, BC to the Okanagan Valley to embrace adventure and a simpler life experience. While she began her art practice painting vineyards and landscapes, a longing to express more deeply nudged her artwork from representational to abstract.
Her daily practice of hiking rugged landscapes urged her to explore the emotional influence of craggy places and spaces and to release a background of precision. Her abstracts are process-driven, where exploration and discovery lead the way. Her sensitivity to design and balance, coupled with her curiosity and experiencing the raw topography that flanks Okanagan Lake is a lovely juxtaposition to her search for depth and meaning.
Pauline’s work is collected across Canada, the US, Australia, Germany, Scotland, Holland.
