Pauline Young-Matchett 


Pauline Young-Matchett  is a visual artist who was first exposed to the creative world through her father Phillip Young visual artist, who painted the bottoms on her feet. She still recalls the smooth sensation of paint oozing between her toes. She draws her inspiration from him and the natural environment and is always looking down to see what the ground can offer, such as incorporating beach sand and red oxide sand into her paintings. Pauline is involved in the Art Tells Stories group project through the Bathurst Art Society and the Miramichi Art Core. She finds this project fascinating because Mi’kmaq historical images is very limited in the Miramichi area and the need to research and explore can produce and bring out the true magic of her Mi’kmaq heritage.
