Pauline produces mainly two dimensional work, including painting, mixed media and print. Images are created through the use of micrographs via digital techniques up to large-format in scale, and also as light boxes. The work reflects upon the interdependence of life forms on the planet and our place within this.
Pauline studied at the Slade School of Fine Art to postgraduate level, followed by part-time lecturing posts and a lectureship in BA Design, Anglia Polytechnic University.
During 2002-3 a research residency at the School of Biological Sciences, University of Cambridge funded by an Awards for Artists and a Six of the Best award [Arts Council East], enabled the development of work through microscopy and digital imaging, culminating in an exhibition of largescale digital prints, light-box works and installations at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden, Bringing into Focus.
Recently she has been working with the support of a grant from the Wellcome Trust, at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. The project, Cardio – Active, explores the form and structure of the human heart and changes that occur when normal function ceases, and the foxglove plant which has been used for 250 years in the treatment of certain heart conditions.
