Pauline Roche
artwork

b. 1962

   Pauline Roche's oil paintings have won a number of awards in juried exhibitions, including The Gold Medal of Honor at the Audubon Artists 55th Annual exhibition; New York; the Leonard J. Meiselman Memorial Award at the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club 101st Annual Exhibition, New York; The Presidents Award at the Salmagundi Club 20th Annual Non-Members Exhibition, New York; and the New Jersey Chapter Award for Artistic Excellence at the American Artists Professional League 69th Grand National Exhibition, New York.
Her work has often been chosen as a Finalist in the Art Renewal Center's International ARC Salon competitions, and she was awarded "Best Social Commentary - Runner Up" in the 2013-2014 ARC Salon. She has received an Award for Artistic Excellence from Southwest Art magazine and won 2nd Prize in The Artists's Magazine 29th Annual Art Competition. She has also received a Certificate of Recognition from the Australian Guild of Realist Artists and a special invitation to exhibit in the Australian Art Excellence Awards Exhibition.

   She is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who of American Women. Feature article on Pauline's work and technique have appeared in American Artist Magazine, Southwest Art and The Artist's Magazine and also covered in show reviews in American Art Collector Magazine.

   Pauline's figurative pieces usually portray people in distinctive settings. She loves to capture the unique gestures of people in quiet contemplation and reveal a connection between the people and their surroundings. In particular, she looks for connections between her figures and art. Museum settings with paintings and sculpture, historical buildings with grand architecture, people involved in dance and musical performance are consistent themes in her figurative work. In addition to her figurative work, Pauline paints still lives, and plein air landscapes. She believes in continually painting a variety of subject matters, enjoying the varied challenges and stimulation that different subjects offer.

   Roche was born in London but grew up in Australia from the age of seven. In 1995 she moved to the United States. She lived for a number of years in Boston, and has now settled in Tucson, Arizona, with her husband and two children.

   Pauline's early art training was in the studios of practicing artists in Australia, where she received extensive training in traditional painting. Her subsequent art education has included studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston and The Florence Academy of Art, Italy.

   Pauline has exhibited her work annually in Boston since 1998 and has also continued to exhibit in Australia where she was the recipient of a coveted prize for oil painting in the prestigious national juried exhibition, The A.M.E. Bale Art Awards, known as Australia's premier awards for traditional realism and figurative art. She has been honored by her peers in Australia's oldest art society, The Victorian Artist's Society, where she was selected as a finalist for the society's 'Artist of the Year' Award Exhibition. The group of works she submitted won the Society's Gordon Moffat Award. Recently she received a special invitation to exhibit in the Australian Art Excellence Awards Exhibition.

   Pauline is an artist member of the California Art Club, a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America, and a member of the Portrait Society of America, and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association. She is also a member of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists, and is a signatory member of the Victorian Artists Society. Her work is included in the corporate collection of the Melbourne Museum, Australia and in numerous collections in USA, Australia, and Europe.
