Pauline HOLANCIN – Painter
Born in Gatineau, Quebec, Pauline’s early interest in art and talent for drawing and painting were fostered by classes at the National Art Gallery in Ottawa. As a result, the Canadian landscape tradition strongly influenced her choice of style and subject matter.
Pauline is an active artist and art instructor. A dedicated on-location painter, nature is an unfailing source of inspiration for her. Proficient in both oils and watercolour, her work can be found in many private and corporate collections in Canada and abroad. In recent years her studio work in still life and florals has also attracted a loyal following. Pauline teaches classes for many Ontario Art Groups and is a summer instructor for the Haliburton and Blue Mountain Schools of Art. She shares with students her love of painting as well as her skills. Pauline herself continues to study with prominent artists in Canada and in the United States. An active member of several Ontario Art Associations, she has won many prizes and awards over the years. Pauline is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour.
