Pauline is happy and grateful to be a ceramic artist creating and teaching in Port Moody and the Metro Vancouver area. Her art practice is inspired by the exploration of nature and beauty, humor and irony. In each piece she aims to find that sweet spot where materials and imagination come together to create a realized work.
Her ceramics are for sale at the Black Berry Gift Shop in Port Moody, The Gallery of BC Ceramics in Vancouver and during exhibitions or privately through this webpage.
Over the years, Pauline's artwork has been seen in many galleries and exhibition spaces including: Port Moody Arts Centre Gallery, The Chinese Cultural Centre Gallery, Place des Arts Gallery, The Gallery of BC Ceramics, The Fort Langley Gallery, Leigh Square Gallery, Coquitlam City Hall, Port Moody City Hall, Port Coquitlam City Hall and more. She is a continuous contributor to local exhibitions and community art projects. For example, she recently participate in a youth cultural event where 10 community heroes were chosen by local youths and 10 different artists created original portraits for them; these portraits were then exhibited at the Appleyard Gallery in Port Moody Arts Centre and will afterwards be awarded to the Heroes. For this event Pauline created a large ceramic plate with a low-relief portrait of the local hero, "Coach Rob" on it.
Pauline holds a degree from the University of British Columbia and studied ceramic arts at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver.
She has been teaching ceramic arts for over 15 years in the Metro Vancouver area.
