Paula originally trained in Textile Art, at Camberwell and the Royal College of Art and as a young graduate spent several years earning a living as a London based designer where she sold hand painted silks and batiks to fashion designers.
She started to paint garden scenes and landscapes while living in rural Worcestershire and now, having recently landed in Buckinghamshire, is absorbing a new and inspiring landscape – the hills, trees and waterways of the Chilterns.
She is a keen amateur gardener and uses her own garden as inspiration as well as many other gardens she visits. As the seasons change, they bring with them their own set of colours and atmosphere to provide non-stop variety and excitement.
Paula uses acrylic paints in fairly liquid form to build layers of colour before working in more detail. Attempting to capture the feel of a season or time of day by the use of colours and form, layers and silhouette; these things all excite and motivate the artist.
Elected an Associate Member of the RBSA in 2013, Paula regularly exhibits work at the RBSA. She has also exhibited work in London and Oxford and sells to private collectors in the UK and abroad.
