Paulina's world is filled with magical creatures born of intuition and imagination. Having spent much of her time drawing from a young age, Paulina finds solace in creating and sharing her brew of whimsy. Her work has been collected worldwide for over 25 years.
Born in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, she reflects, "my kind-hearted imaginary monster was perhaps not so imaginary afterall. I've been drawing ever since I can remember, and alternate worlds/dimensions have always been real and close by for me."
Paulina creates her work using mainly watercolour and pen/ink. "My first love is line art; working with shadow and light using intuitive, organic, fine lines. I like to combine my pen & ink work and watercolour layer by layer, and my technique varies from piece to piece." She has always been inspired by the works of artists from the golden age of illustration such as Arthur Rackham, John Tenniel, Kay Nielsen, and Sulamith Wulfing.
A songwriter and Projeck Records artist, Paulina composes and produces music. "I've been writing songs on piano ever since I was a little girl; it was time to delve back into that audio flame. Sound and vision come from the same sea of creativity. You could say that my music is what my art sounds like."
A dancer, Paulina uses movement as a way of accessing new ideas and inspirations for her visual and audio projects.
Paulina and her husband Kevin live in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with their two feline furbabies, Mortimer and Lilith.
