Hi, my name is Paula, I live on an old farm, in a tiny hamlet just outside Colchester. I am surrounded by water, trees and meadows – I love nature and certainly live in a place where nature is ‘at home’
I am not sure how to classify myself as an artist, I guess I wear two hats…
As a ceramic artist I create serene installation pieces from wafer thin sheets of porcelain, that look like torn pieces of paper.
As a book artist I create installations with found objects that are reminiscent of ‘Curiosity Cabinets’.
The two types of work are opposite in as much as the ceramic work is pure, serene and uncluttered – whereas the assemblages are packed with many bottles, books and boxes.
I was confused about these two different art forms until I realised the thing that really drives me: LAYERS – all my work is about layers! Simple when you think about it!
