Paula has more talent then is fair for any one person to have, and on top of it all, she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Working in a stunning array of media Paula is a textile artist, knitwear designer, painter and printer!
As she says herself : I like to imagine that I blew into Baltimore carried from the East Coast of Scotland by some Northern wind. West Cork has cast a spell on me. The geography, the fraying landscape tailing off into the Atlantic, surrounded by a scattering of islands, which constantly brave the elements, have informed and formed my life and career for over twenty years.
