Paula's favourite medium is watercolour but she enjoys working in oils as well as acrylics. Her representational style captures the magic of the moment.

Even at the young age of three I spent a lot of my time drawing and really loved it. I always knew that I wanted to have a career in art. When I finished school I applied and got accepted at art college in Croydon, England. Somehow when I had finished my training the lure of travelling seemed to take over and before I knew it the last thing I ever did was paint. Some twenty five years later I started to take art classes again and immediately the world of art opened up to me with all the excitement of painting and drawing and the satisfaction of accomplishment and I really had to wonder why I had left it for so long. The incredible thing was that during those years when I no longer painted I must have still been mentally learning because when I finally did pick up a paint brush I had improved a thousand fold.
In the last three years I have gone from student to teacher and now paint in watercolour, oil and acrylic. All the artistic friends and teachers that I have met along the way have really enriched my life and I think made me a better and a happier person. I love to paint it creates an inner satisfaction and a certain calm that nothing else seems to give me. I prefer to paint in the solitude of my studio listening to classical music. I paint mainly landscapes and especially enjoy painting scenes from my native country of England. I also really enjoy painting buildings and flowers.
I feel so fortunate to have art back in my life again and to have met the people that I have and all the wonderful students both young and old that I teach but I don’t want to stop here – there is a huge world of wonder and excitement waiting for me out there and I can’t wait to get started on that road. Thank you to my family and friends and everyone who has helped me on this incredible journey.
