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 in Chicago, Houston, and Las Vegas. Currently showing at AW Gallery located in The Arts Factory in the Arts District of Las Vegas. The “Pin-head” figures are all drawn in ink and colored pencil.  I’ve been working on maps, sheet music and prints of my own photography combining my love for nature and life drawing.  Check out more artwork on  Facebook at  Paula Smiles Art and Instagram @paulamsmiles
