About Me

I’ve been told many times that I do not know a stranger – which now includes expanding my friendships on the web.  Pour another cup of coffee or iced tea & let’s visit a while.

I’ve always felt the need to create!  Perhaps my calling began in church as suggested in the artwork found in my Great Aunt Lucille’s bible that reads: “Little Paula Louise drawing – pretty good for a little four year old.”  The Great Creator Himself inspires me as I am continually amazed at His handiwork.


My life is shared with my sweet Terry.  We’ve been married over 40 years & raised a wonderful Daughter & Son.  My paint brushes would come out frequently while we were  busy building a life together.  A few years ago, I retired from a 30 year career in corporate banking as Vice President in Residential Lending.


Now, we are enjoying the retirement life. We are very much aware that we are blessed with simple life moments such as the glorious sunsets from our back deck to our world traveling adventures.



about-me-2Lastly, I want to tell you of a longing to share my 
love of art. There is a scripture that tells us to
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall
give thee the desires of thine heart”
(kjv. Psalms 37:4). As I’ve claimed that message,
I continue to be amazed of the opportunities
opened to me as I pursuing the desires of
my heart. Ideas are pouring out like paint!
