Pauline was born in Great Britain (U.K.) but has lived most of her life in Canada. Her home and studio are
located in Chilliwack, in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia. Sixty minutes from Vancouver, home of the
2010 Winter Olympics, and twenty-five minutes from the U.S./Canada border.
For over three decades she created woven tapestries using hand dyed and hand spun fibre.
She currently uses various methods of surface design on silk, wool, linen
and other natural fibres to express her vision.
In 2010 she founded "Outside the Box - A Celebration of Fibre & Textile Arts", in White Rock,
British Columbia, Canada, a festival she coordinated until early 2015.
It has now completed its highly successful sixth year.

"In my work I attempt to capture, in a small way,
some of the beauty of God's creation.
I delight in the texture and colour to be found in different types of fibre.
I enjoy using various techniques to express my vision
of the world around us.
I am grateful for the unique gifts we all possess
and desire to use mine to honour my Maker."
