Drawing on feelings and memories of place, the weather and its impacts plays a significant part in Paula’s work.
She plays with combinations of colours, textures and expressive marks to create mood, atmosphere, drama.
“When I start a painting I have no end point in mind. I paint intuitively, focusing first on the desire to work with particular colours. This experimental part of the process is like building the foundations of the painting. Layering colour and texture through mark making. Adding glazes to create depth and atmosphere.
At times my landscapes are almost abstracted.”
