Although I’ve loved to draw since I could hold a crayon, I had no art instruction until I majored in Studio Art at Principia College. Following college I immediately began exhibiting my watercolor paintings in galleries and exhibitions in the Northwest In fact I became a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society before I was 25. For a while, life got in the way and there were only brief snippets of time to draw and paint. Then one day I realized I could make some choices. I started drawing and painting, eventually exhibiting and teaching art again. Hallelujah! So much bliss, I had to share. To see more of my work, I invite you to visit my website, paulaensignart.com.
