VENUE 18 | Old Town Hall


Pauline is a textile artist, designer and quiltmaker. The landscape, plant-forms and seasonal changes in the Scottish Borders, provide endless resource and inspiration for her textile work.  

Pauline draws, stitches, prints and collages her way through many processes to create what she sees as ‘textile landscapes’, making unique, large-scale, stitched, collaged and quilted textile wall hangings, as well as functional, usable quilts. They are all made from a broad range of fine cottons and silks. She immerses herself in the process of making and fuses this together with the imagery that inspires her. She never tires of making, creating and inventing with cloth, colour and texture; it is where she finds balance and contentment. Textiles are her celebrated medium, linking fine-art and craftwork.

Pauline's career spans over more than four decades – throughout this time she has developed her own unique visual language. Many of her quiltworks have been purchased by Museums. For example, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Whitworth Art Gallery, here in the UK, and the International Quilt Museum in the USA. 

This year, Pauline will be exhibiting in the Old Town Hall, alongside her husband, Charles Poulsen. The venue is number 18 on the map.
