Born in London in 1973, Pauline Joseph-Holmes is a classical painter. She is currently finishing her diploma in portrait painting at Heatherleys.
Physiognomy and an understanding of the human psyche is of prime importance to her work, through a process that involves an intuitive empathy with her sitter. She aims to capture human emotion and project it on to her canvas.
Her principle influences are Antonello de Messina, Degas and Toulouse Lautrec.
