Paulene is inspired by the urban built environment. Her work highlights the everyday, recognising overlooked beauty in the ordinary.
She works principally with textiles and found objects.
Drawing and painting are the foundations of my practice. I enjoy the challenge imposed by limiting the subject and try to create images that offer a curious interest.
My practice is drawing and painting. I am fascinated by the human form and portraiture with the challenge of capturing something of the essence of a person. I also enjoy colourful abstract painting that reflect the forces of nature.
I create colourful geometric abstractions, which tell stories. They are meant to intrigue, challenge, appeal and amuse. Some are episodes from particular lives, others offer a wider perspective.
