The rosy-cheeked children playing throughout Pauline Paquin’s work have become well known to Canadian collectors. Using bold colours and rapid brushstrokes, Paquin creates delightful small panels that concentrate on the movements and activities of the children. Their faces are intentionally left indistinct, encouraging the viewer to remember his or her own childhood.
Pauline Paquin is a self-taught artist who has developed a very personal style that has often been described as “fresh” and “honest”. Her paintings radiate with the energy and enthusiasm of childhood.
