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. “Foreshortening on steroids, ” these ‘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.  All pieces are one of a kind/originals.  Although it took me 50+ years to get to the point that I can do these drawings, my goal is to share my artwork.  (Available for commisions. Payments via PayPal,  Zelle  or cash locally)   Check out more artwork on  Facebook at  Paula Smiles Art and Instagram @paulamsmiles .  (paulasmilesart@gmail.com) Currently all proceeds (minus shipping) are being donated to a scholarship fund for at risk youth to attend a Visual and Performing Arts Camp, here, in Las Vegas.  Your contributions are much appreciated!!
