 Passionately driven to express the light and color in God’s creations, Paula's goal is to enable her audience to feel the emotion and excitement of the moment captured on the canvas.  Paula has been interested in art and design for the majority of her life.  Initially entering college on a path to a business degree proved to be disastrous but productive in identifying her true interests.  With a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Houston with an emphasis on interior design and art history, Paula worked in advertising doing a little bit of everything from designing major print campaigns for large grocery store chains to designing Zoo and Transit Authority signage. Her work transitioned to painting murals, decorative furniture, a couture line of handbags and wall coverings as well as faux finishing interiors professionally for several years.

Traveling across the country to study with many gifted and giving artists has fueled Paula's passion for painting.  Studying with Huihan Liu, Kevin Macpherson, Skip Whitcomb, Jill Carver, Derek Penix, Matt Smith, and many others keep her striving to create the best expressions of light and color.  With each instructor pushing her to paint outside more, Plein Air painting has become a necessity in her study of color and terrain.  Paula cofounded Houston Plein Air Painters(HPAP), a group dedicated to painting urban and rural settings in and around the Houston area.  
Capturing beautiful moments and light continues to be Paula's quest as she and her husband, Steve, raise their family.  Together with their two sons and two dogs, they call Houston and the surrounding communities home.  Paula participates in numerous juried shows and her paintings are in several private collections in Texas and across the United States.  Paula [...]
