"I can't remember not having either a needle, a brush or book in my hands but all untrained! When I met my husband he taught me how to paint with watercolours, just what I needed to portray the flowers that I love so much.
When we moved to Wiltshire from Kent a new friend invited me to the City & Guilds Embroidery exhibition at Salisbury College - I was hooked and signed up for the course instantly. From then onwards I have lived, breathed and dreamed embroidery and design. Most of my work is inspired by nature either realistic or fantasy."
Pauline is a visiting artist at Textile Showcase 2005.
