Paula Lundy was born in the south West of England. She began her art training at age 7 from a prominent artist and neighbour. Having Weekly art lessons at such a young age demonstrated to her parents and school teachers alike that Paula had a great passion, talent and understanding of art, technique and design, with a wild imagination and bags of creativity.
Paula has won competitions and awards for her art and has raised thousands for charity auctioning her work alongside known artists such as Anita Klein, Quentin Blake, Ken Howard, Sir Peter Blake, Robin Eckardt & Nick Park
Being exposed to art at such a young age along with being one of only two children at comprehensive school allowed to drop an academic subject in favour of an extra creative one, gave Paula the confidence and self belief that allowed her to follow her intuition and let her creativity and imagination take over.
Paula has exhibited in many galleries in the UK and channel Islands and has sold her artwork worldwide, as far afield as Singapore.
After studying for seven years and experimenting for fifteen, with a vast array of painting styles and mediums, Paula has finally found her unparalleled personification of self expression. Paula creates large statement pieces often of iconic scenes using marble dust and resin to build up texture and detail before coating the surface in high pigment metallic paints and metal leaf. The result of which is an amalgamation of paint and sculpture on canvas.
Paula’s unique style comes from her passion for combining heavy texture with strong visual metallics. Her work stems from a love of sculpture, painting and an ever expanding array of materials. Her work is not something that could ever be copied. Distinctive in appearance and textured form, her art has some very strange but compelling effects on its admirers;
it actually compels the viewer to reach out and touch the piece! An amusing side effect of her highly recognizable style, yet even more of a testament to its power to transfix and absorb you.
Paula's artwork titled 'city' is featured on ArtGallerys.co.uk's £1000 gift voucher.
