Paulette is a multi-disciplinary artist who works with photography and experimental, hand-painted, textile surface design. She is committed to utilizing art in service to causes and her community.

She has exhibited her work throughout Connecticut and in New York City.

From a very early age, she was passionate about the visual arts and would draw and paint for hours, taking delight in making her creations. As an art student, she studied traditional film-based photography under internationally renowned conceptual artist Jack Sal at the University of Bridgeport and graduated magna cum laude. She studied digital photography at the photography center of Serenbe Institute in Georgia, one of the leading visual and performing arts centers in the Southeastern United States and technique with celebrated photographer Lois Greenfield in New York City. She studied surface textile design techniques with artist and master designer Hellenne Vermillion in the Atlanta metro area.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Utilizing the medium of digital photography, I create works of art on paper and canvas.  I also experiment with hand-painted, textile surface design where I can indulge my passion for color and experience the tactile quality of art-making in this medium. The botanical forms of nature are the subjects of my current work in photography and my work with hand-painted, surface design.  I draw inspiration from the forms, textures, colors and transitional energies of the seasons.  I’m drawn to the ephemeral, the transforming, the impermanent. My strongest influences are the classic works of Imogen Cunningham, Georgia O’Keeffe and, Brett Weston, especially those that depict botanical subject matter and abstraction.
