Paula was born and raised in Vineland, New Jersey. She became interested in art during her teen years. At that time, she began taking classes at the Barn Studio of Art in Millville, NJ under the direction of local renowned artist Pat Witt. She marred and lived away for several years, but, continued to attend art classes and workshops wherever and whenever she had the chance.
Eventually, she moved back to South Jersey and became busy raising a family and working. During that busy period of her life it became challenging to find the time to paint. After many years, she was finally able to once again resume taking art classes and workshops. Though she always and still does enjoy watercolors, she has discovered the magic of acrylics. She has been painting with acrylics for the past 15 years. She paints what she sees and feels and enjoys creating texture with painting knives.
She has been in numerous art shows and has won several awards. At present, she is a member of The Society of New Jersey Artists, The Ocean City Fine Arts League, Ocean City, NJ, The Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts, Millville, NJ and Gallery 50 in Bridgeton, NJ
Her artwork is presently on display and for sale at Arts on Asbury Gallery in Ocean City, NJ
Painting is my passion. I am inspired by my travels as well as my everyday surroundings. Around every corner I see a painting waiting to happen. There is so much to see, you just have to look.
