**As of July 3rd, we did not get enough sign ups to fulfill Paulette’s minimum student requirement, consequently the weekend has been canceled**
Nature of Abstraction
Saturday July 11, 5pm-9pm
Like many other artists, Paulette has been creative from a very young age. For many years she dreamed of painting, but could never bring herself to pick up a paint brush until October of 2006. That’s when her love of creating stories with paint and paper began. Her mixed media paintings are visual narratives with many, many layers…not only literally, but figuratively as well. Inspired by her faith, music, nature, and life, her work mainly focuses around spiritual themes meant to uplift and inspire the viewer.
With her background in technical writing and instruction, it was only natural that Paulette would eventually teach painting classes. Wanting to encourage others to face their fears and do the thing that they’ve always wanted to, her classes are structured to encourage students to explore and trust their creative voices and listen to their intuition.
Originally from Alabama, Paulette now lives just outside of Portland, Oregon with her husband and their very busy five year old son Aiden. When she’s not busy chasing around her little boy, she loves to paint, take pictures, read anything to do with art and/or design, and make videos about her art.
