Pauline Gyles HS, FSBA, RMS - British Miniature Painter

On going to a portrait class at the local art college in Poole the tutor noted that she was working on a small scale and encouraged her to paint miniatures.

She first exhibited with the Royal Miniature Society in 1976, was elected an Associate in 1981 and a full member of the RMS in 1985.

Her work may be seen in several London galleries, and locally near her home in Poole, Dorset.

Pauline Gyles is a Founder Member of the Society of Botanical Artists, a member of the Hilliard Society, and full member of the Royal Miniature Society.

Pauline Gyles never received a formal art school training. On leaving school she hand-colored photographic portraits in watercolor to resemble paintings. This came to an end with the advent of color photography.
