Adventure. Individuality. Freedom.
Paula has always been captivated by motorcycles, the biker lifestyle and the legend of Harley-Davidson and its thunder. The feeling of the open road and at being one with nature means freedom, individuality, adventure and is a symbol that’s larger than life for her.
Paula's paintings are an interpretation of that lifestyle - of the roar and thunder of a bike, of tradition, beauty, and history. Paula understands what freedom to ride means.
As an artist and painter, she interprets the biker lifestyle through subject, composition, and color palette.
