Paula was born and educated in Boston (a Master’s in Education from Boston University). In 2012, she relocated from the San Francisco Bay Area to San Luis Obispo (SLO). Inspired by the beauty of the central coast and her intrinsic love of nature, Paula resumed painting. Painting primarily outdoors (plein air), Paula creates contemporary impressionistic “scapes” (landscapes, seascapes, skyscapes, and cityscapes) in oils.
Her award-winning work has been featured in numerous juried exhibits such as the California Art Club (CAC) Plein Air Painters Showcase, the SLOMA and ARTS Obispo Pop-up Galleries, the Santa Barbara Artwalk, Studios on the Park, the Beacon Art Show, and the SLO County En Plein Air exhibit.
