At age 14 I misheard the word ‘nude’ for ‘new’ and signed up for a life drawing class with new (nude) models. So my journey began. My passion for drawing has evolved from my early years at the YAS- School of the Art Institute of Chicago, to exhibiting at shows at The JCC of Houston, The Figurative Art League, Skokie Art Guild, She Art, Art & Beyond, National Pastime Theater, Phantom Gallery in Chicago and Las Vegas Art Guild. My scarves (hand painted) , cards and drawings are currently on display at Jana’s Red Room located in The Art’s Factory in the Arts District of Las Vegas . The “Pin-head” figures are all drawn in ink and colored pencil. Check out more artwork on Facebook at Paula.Smiles.
