Paula studied glass at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada. She earned a BFA(hons)glass at the University of Sunderland in the United Kingdom. She has worked with a diverse group of internationally established artists which has allowed her to diversify and develop her work in other countries. Paula explores the technical process of three-dimensional sculptural sand casting, hot glass, and kiln casting. She combines mixed mediums and found objects as part of her creative process to create tactile, erotic sculptures. Paula’s work has always shown passion towards the human form as well as a fascination with the emotions which animate it. For someone interacting with one of these sculptures, the beauty and lyricism combine with an energy and tension which gives a dramatic quality to her work.

artist’s statement

“One must always maintain one’s connection with the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it.”
– Gaston Bachelard

One can appreciate my sculptures as a celebration of creation, regeneration and mortality. I create my own cultural identity in which the visual codes of my subconscious become reanimated. I creatively reconstruct the past and redefine its meaning. My art gives form to the soul and entices the audience to interact and unravel the mysteries of who we are as human beings. Touch is as revealing as vision, and when this exchange happens the audience can internalize and correlate a story unique to them.
