Paula lives and works in the Peak District, Derbyshire.
Having gained a degree in Textile Design at Reigate School of Art in Surrey in the early 70's Paula spent 15 years as a freelance textile designer for the international bedding and furnishing market, creating designs for companies such as Coloroll, John Wilman Interiors, John Wolf Decorative Fabrics in the USA and Portmeirion and Churchill China. This and the landscape surrounding her home and also the North Norfolk Coast and Cornwall, have all significantly influenced her work.
Working on gesso prepared board with acrylic, ink and graphite and using a combination of still life and landscape backdrop, with the paintings usually divided into three; domestic objects and flowers in the foreground, land and sky. Her use of pattern and colour is evidence of her past in textile and ceramic design.
