Today I had the pleasure of meeting Pauline Hudson to view her art work. I
was impressed with the standard of work and also it's uniqueness.
In all my 40 years of teaching art to pupils of all ages and abilities, I found Pauline's unique style and choice of subject matter something I had never come across before.
Pauline's work is sensitive, beautiful and quite outstanding. You can therefore imagine my surprise to learn that her work had been assessed by tutors as D.
I am writing to you in the hope that you will publish this letter so that her work which I believe is to be re-assessed, will gain a grading of at least B+ and in my humble opinion the work is worth an A.
