Pauline Angus was born with the rare congenital condition known as arthrogryposis, which affects the muscles and bones of the limbs. In Pauline's case the condition rendered her a permanent wheelchair user. She became interested in art at school, achieving an A level in the subject. Her work was brought to the attention of the Mouth & Foot Painting Artists and she was accepted as a student artist at the age of just seventeen.
Originally from Inverness, Pauline now lives in the warmer climate of Bracklesham Bay, near Chichester, West Sussex, with Mouth & Foot Painting Student Artist Jeff Astle. She works mainly in oils and enjoys painting still life, especially flowers.
