Bio: Paula Pearl graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Advertising Design/Photography, and began a career in photography in New York City. She later became involved in quiltmaking and fiber arts and when a friend mentioned that some of her (award-winning) art quilts resemble paintings, she decided to give painting a try. Starting with watercolour, she soon after tried her hand at pastels and the rich intensity of the colors and the layering effects that are possible with pastel make it her medium of choice.
Paula has studied watercolor painting with Bill Senior and pastel painting with Julie Friedman. She has had several solo shows including Alfa Art Gallery, New Brunswick, The Shelter House Museum, Newburg, New York and the Gallery on the Boulevard, Kenilworth Library, New Jersey. In addition, many of her paintings are in private collections.She has won numerous awards for her work, among them, Tewksbury Historical Society Show, 1st Place Landscape, MSHAC Overlook Hospital Award of Excellence, WAA: Jeanette Golda Memorial Award and an Award of Merit.
Paula is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of New Jersey, and an Associate Member of the American Pastel Society. Her work was featured in The Artists’ Magazine, April 2017 as an Annual Art Competition finalist.
