Paula Moore, watercolor artist and owner of PaulaMooreArt has been told many times that she does not know a stranger – which now includes expanding her friendships on the web. Pour another cup of coffee or iced tea & let’s visit a while.
She has always felt the need to create! Perhaps her calling began in church as suggested in the artwork found in her Great Aunt Lucille’s bible that reads: “Little Paula Louise drawing – pretty good for a little four year old.” The Great Creator Himself inspires Paula as she is continually amazed at His handiwork.
Her life is shared with her husband Terry. They have been married over 40 years and raised a wonderful daughter and son. Paula's paint brushes would come out frequently while they were busy building a life together.
A few years ago, Paula retired from a 30 year career in corporate banking. Now, she and her husband are enjoying the retirementlife. They are very much aware that they are blessed with simple life moments such as the glorious sunsets from their back deck to their world traveling adventures.
Paula has 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). Paula has claimed that message and continues to be amazed of the opportunities opened to her as she pursues the desires of her heart. Ideas are pouring out of her like paint! Whether she is painting custom pet portraits, teaching watercolor classes or watercolor workshops Paula is sharing her love and talent of art with everyone around her.
