Artist's Biography

Pauline Roods has been painting for over 20 years. She is a realist, with a preference to work with acrylic and watercolour. Pauline believes these mediums allow her to create pictures with character, expression and dimension. Pauline's goal is not only to present a scene, but to place the viewer within that scene.
Pauline grew up in Port Macquarie, and a love of its natural beauty runs deep in her veins.
Pauline has had a number of exhibitions, and her works hang in collections (both private and commercial) in Australia, Japan, Singapore, America, New Zealand and Fiji.
