Opens Aug 7, Gallery 1551, located at 1551 Montgomery Drive, Santa Rosa, CA

(First United Methodist Church)

Paula has been making and selling art all her life, and painting in watercolor for more than 20 years. She has studied with many local and national artists, and has come to love mixed media as well. Paula currently hosts workshops in “Soul Painting,” a wonderful, meditative form of art-play.

A member of Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County (WASCO), Paula’s first and best love is painting plein aire in watercolor, ‘where time stops and the painting is all there is.’  More recently, she has been working with mosaics in a process called “Pique Assiette.” Literally translated, it means plate thief and relies on tesserae (mosaic bits) from broken china and crockery.”

I Love Emily

This is an unfinished step stool top I am completing for my granddaughter.  I painted it for her when she was a toddler to help her reach the sink.  It has some wear and tear so I thought it would be nice to update it.   The top is a pictograph that reads, “I Love Emily”.  I will update the image when it is complete.2015StoolTopForEm32015StoolTopForEm4
