My name is Pauline, I was Pauline scudder before I married, I'm now Pauline Jones. I'm a self tought painter, but I've been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. right from the age of 5 years old my stick people got top marks in the class:) Due to circumstances, e.g. no money, I never was able to go to art college but I did learn a lot form a home study course that I did, I passed with distinction and felt very proud of myself, it was as good as getting an "ology" for me. A few years ago I was encourged by a very good online friend to take up soft pastel painting, she thought it would suite my realist style. I paint pet portraits, mainly dogs, but I will enjoy painting any animal given the chance.
Animals are my passion, my dream is to be surrounded by them, but alas that is out of the question, I did have my akita rescue girl named Asia, up until October 2018 she is my constant companion and I loved her to bits, sadley she passed on at the age of 15 and I know had my new akita rescue boy named Hugo. Apart from dogs my other passion is fancy rats, they are very special little animals and one day I'll paint a picture of my sweet little rat, who sadley passed on some time ago, named Honeysuckle. I don't have a rat right now because my dog would rather eat it instead of make friends with it ;)
