ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Paula Hare is a life-long artist, designer and creative director and holds a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. She is well-known for her extraordinary design and drawing skills. Paula is a plein air and studio painter who brings a unique perspective to her work which includes unusual juxtapositions, compositions, and subjects.

Paula's keen eye for detail, composition, and appreciation for the unconventional; allow her to breathe life into scenes that might escape the notice of others.

 

Whether it's the play of light on chrome, the wind-swept landscapes that unfold along the journey, or elements of a back-alley way, Paula's paintings tell stories and evoke questions.

 

She captures not only the elements but also the essence of the moments they portray and the stories they tell.

Her work is found in galleries, private and corporate collections nationwide.

Paula is currently seeking new gallery representation.
