Pauleen`s Dance and Fitness Studio

 

Pauleen Micallef was born in 1951 in the United Kingdom but moved and settled in Malta.  She has been painting all her life.  Has also studied History of Art – attended various workshops with international artists, hailing from United Kingdom, Germany, Norway, South Africa and Poland.


Her works have progressed from impressionism to bold expressionism.  She looks up to ‘Egon Schiele’ (1890-1913), Otto Dix (1891-1969), Picasso (1881-1973) and Joan Miro` (1893-1983).  Although she paints scenic and floral subjects, her main interest is portraiture and the human figure.  Painting these subjects can portray a picture of human emotion, suffering or happiness which reflect the problems of the era, and can transmit a message to the onlooker.

She is a collector of other artists’ works and never misses visiting Art Galleries wherever she travels.  Most recent visit was to the Prado Museum and  Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid.

Pauleen’s mediums vary from oil, water, dry and acrylic.  Has works in private collections locally and abroad.  She is a regular contributor to philanthropic events.  Her philosophies: ‘Admiring one’s work is a privilege, buying the work is a bonus,’ ‘When a painting is hung on the wall, part of the artist remains there too’. Her works are for sale.
