Paula has been involved artistically most of her life. Early in her career she worked as a freelance designer for “Provo Craft Publishing” who printed five books of her designs. She began a ten year business hand painting clothing as well as having her designs screen-printed on shirts.
Although primarily self taught, she has attended workshops, and studied many artists work until her own style evolved. While teaching children’s drawing, Paula developed a fascination for painting figure and portraits of women and children. More recently she enjoys painting Indian children and florals.
Paula is a signature member of the Southern Utah Watercolor Association. She has participated in the Zion Bank Staircase Gallery and the Rimrock Gallery in St. George, receiving several Best of Shows and other numerous awards including Judges Choice at the 2003 County Fair and several First Place awards in Hurricane Peach Days over the years. She has been invited to the Sears Dixie Invitational and received an Honorable Mention in 2006 and third place watercolor (other) in 2010.
