ABOUT PAULA CHERRY
As an abstract artist, I enjoy experimenting with materials and techniques. I have developed a personal style, creating distinctive forms of composition, harmony and mood with an interest in the balance of colour, shape and special relationship.
I hope to express a rawness of emotion and bold application in each painting. Many of my paintings are created by a process of building up and scraping back layers of paint. I often pour liquid glazes onto the canvas which forces me to work quickly and spontaneously, often with bold colours.
Born in Hertfordshire and a former fellow of Digswell Arts Trust, I have always painted. I studied art, photography, fashion and textiles, and worked in advertising for several years before refocusing my career on creating art.
