Pauline Clyde drawing Indian Head Rock, Borrego Desert, CA. 2010

Pauline Clyde worked as a commercial artist, illustrating guide books and producing watercolour images of proposed buildings for developers in London and worked on private commissions of house exteriors and interiors. 

Pauline turned her attention to non-commercial work and has since concentrated on painting.   She experiments with media in order to develop her responses to the environment and is constantly playing and responding to the energies and effects of the natural world; studying the nature of water, the seasonal changes of trees, the compositions of still life and the movement and colours of flowers.  Her work varies from energetic abstracts to tenaciously observed studies and she finds the execution of a painting a constant and exciting puzzle to be solved.

In order to share and work with other painters, Pauline has a studio in Somerset where she holds 'painting together' days, weekend retreats and art weeks for which she is qualified to teach.  She runs tutoring sessions in London.
