Pauline Bewick at Feile na Greine, Waterville, Co Kerry
Bewick now lives and works in County Kerry, where she spent some of her peripatetic childhood on a farm. She is a descendant of 19th-century artist Thomas Bewick.
A prolific artist, Bewick paints in oil, sculpts, and works with cloth, but is most associated with watercolours. For the last decade or so she has been working on her Yellow Man project, a large collection of works featuring a cartoon-like yellow horned figure. In 2006 she donated a collection of 200 works including tapestries, wall hangings, watercolours and sketches to the state, now on permanent display in the Walton Building at the Waterford Institute of Technology, and in the Killorglin Library, Co. Kerry.
