About the Artist
Hi, I’m Paula and it’s lovely to meet you!
I am a visual artist, based in County Antrim and have loved being creative all my life. I studied Textile Design at college achieving a First Class BA Hons degree, and my passion for colour and pattern continues to inspire my paintings. By day, a teacher of art and design, I have continued to carve out time for my own work. Moving towards retirement, I cannot wait to spend more time in my little Whisper Studio, my own creative space that overlooks my garden.
My painting practice, inspired by nature, fills me with joy and I am so happy to share it with you here.
Currently, I use a subtle colour palette to record entwined seasonal flowers and foliage, allowing me to capture the calming effects of nature and the changing seasons.
I predominately use acrylic paint on canvas board and adore the fine textural quality of this surface. My creative process involves experimenting with soft, atmospheric backgrounds which allow the detailed silhouettes of natural form to take centre stage.
My hope is that one of my paintings finds a loving home with you 🤍
