Pauline Furnival

Born in Manchester, Pauline has recently returned to the UK after spending many years in Portugal and Brasil, where she had successfully exhibited her work. She currently lives in North Shropshire.   Many of her paintings are abstract and  inspired by natural rock, granites and marble.  She has recently experimented with high gloss resin finishes, that add an appealing reflective quality.
