About Paula Christie

Paula Christie (Member of the Oil Painters of Ameica) showed promise as an artist from her earliest years and was accepted to the arts program at the University of Wisconsin. She continued her training and exploration of painting and drawing while living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, San Francisco, California, Melbourne, Australia, and the island of Crete, Greece. Paula has also studied traditional egg tempera in Italy with internationally known painter, Fred Wessel.

Paula also has an appreciation for Tuscan pottery and ceramics, and the Austalian Impressionists from the late19th century. During her travels, Paula found that local forms of artistic expression in various foreign countries were influential on her personal style. Her paintings are recognizable for intense color and rich texture.

Paula now resides in Michigan and maintains a studio there offering painting classes and workshops. Paula also holds a Masters in International Marketing and offers occasional market planning and customer analysis workshops for artists.

"I use traditional methods of achieving realism in my painting with attention to light, color, composition and perspective. Brilliant color, deep texture and bold brush strokes combine to create beautiful landscapes, serene marshes, wild storms, and vivid still life compositions".
