After receiving a BA in Studio Art from Grinnell College, Paula Green moved to Houston, Texas where she attended classes at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts School and worked as an illustrator at the Houston Zoological Gardens. Moving to Maine in 1979, she continued to work with colored pencil and pen and ink while exploring printmaking with Frances Hodsdon.
Her work has been widely shown across the state including shows @ Round Top Center for the Arts, Damariscotta, ME, the Ellsworth Public Library in Ellsworth, ME, the Blaine House, Augusta, ME, and the Downtown Art Gallery in Washington, ME, where she is a member of the co-op. Currently, she divides her time between her graphics business, Peagreen Card Company, and producing mixed media and three-dimensional work for galleries.
At present I am interested in exploring personalities and relationships by working with oil stick and acrylic on paper. I strive for using the simplest means to achieve human expression and to convey emotion in a way that is familiar to the viewer.
Three-dimensional assemblage is another aspect of my artwork. I like to use commonplace objects which, when added to other materials, make a new form. That form is most often human. The challenge is combing materials to make something that transcends the original elements and takes on a life of its own.
