Pauline Kent was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.  She trained as an art teacher at Alsager college in Cheshire.

Pauline taught in secondary schools in Cheshire and North Wales for many years as well as opening a children`s day nursery when her children were young.  Art in many differing mediums was a great feature of the activities offered.

 

In 2004 Pauline won a major prize at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists summer show and in 2005 also at the Royal Cambrian Society of Artists in Conway, North Wales.  Since then, she has exhibited and sold work widely throughout Great  Britain and abroad.  In 2007 she had a commission to paint works of art in bold vibrant colours to adorn the walls of Bodelwyddan hospital in N. Wales. In 2011, Pauline had a 2 person exhibition at Erddig National Trust estate and in the same year at St Julian’s Centre in Shrewsbury.

Inspired by the landscape, bold bright colour and texture fascinate her.  She strives to create exciting and evocative paintings.  Pauline paints in watercolour, acrylic and oils.  She uses photographs and sketches taken on location as a starting point only, tending to paint the way she feels as opposed to interpreting literally, giving her a chance to put her personal stamp on the subject. For Pauline, painting comes from the heart and it is something she is highly passionate about.

 

Pauline runs painting workshops and demonstrates for art clubs and societies and in service training for teachers.  She has taught watercolour painting on MV Minerva some eleven times, and independently on Saga`s Spirit of Adventure several times.  She also runs a summer school in Morillon, a resort in the Swiss alps where watercolour, acrylics and oil are taught.
