A captured moment in time, memories of distant landscapes, landmarks such as a church or mill combined with domestic objects and flowers in the foreground, create small cameo's within the framework of Paula's paintings.
"I don't seek to draw in a realistic way, I prefer to paint in a naïve style that catches the eye." Inspiration comes from many areas including ceramics, fabrics, scrapbooks collected over the years, a walk in the rugged landscape surrounding our home, with her training as a textile designer becoming apparent with pattern and rich colours.
Paula works on card prepared beforehand with gesso, and sometimes on linen or paper. She uses acrylic glazes creating layers, before thicker acrylic paint is worked on top, then graphite applied in certain areas. Each painting an observation of everyday life.
