Paula's art has to have ongoing meaning for her. Not conforming to obvious imagery, she is more concerned with the work’s emotional and spiritual context, 'speaking the truth - sending the message'.
Paula is known and respected for her work with colour, expressionism and her approach to cubism. Working in all mediums, she surprises the viewer with the diverse use of subject matter, colour and approach to modernism. An award winning artist of some distinction, Paula allows the viewer to enjoy their 'journey' through the many aspects of her work, delighting in the direction in which it takes them. Her preferred artists are from the European, Polish and Russian schools, which she visits and studies on a regular basis.
Trained in sign-writing, illustration, display and marketing, Paula studied painting and associated art forms over a period of years in Wellington(dip), Auckland, Hamilton,Palmerston North, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Europe.
She has had numerous group and individual shows over her 40 year career, with works in major collections here in New Zealand and internationally.
