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, Jana’s Red Room and Wonderland Gallery located in The Art’s Factory in the Arts District of Las Vegas and . The “Pin-head” figures are all drawn in ink and colored pencil. Check out more artwork on Facebook at Paula.Smiles.
