About Paula O’Brien

I’m a colorful visual artist. My current works focus on big juicy flowers and abstract landscape paintings with views from my West Coast World. My passion for color splashes over everything I touch, from my original oil paintings to my eclectic clothes and inspiring artistic home.

I look for the energy and light; the light, shapes and spaces between objects; the shimmering energy that comes from these subjects into the world. I look deeply into my subjects, from the beautiful West Coast landscapes that greet me each morning to rusting fishing boats to dazzling contemporary dancers and I fall in love with the beauty of the light falling upon their forms, their shadows and reflections.

My artistic vision, interesting cropping, composition and color combinations define my expressive abstract signature look.

A long practice of life drawing and urban sketching gives me the foundation for lovely fast and loose plein air painting.

Digital painting is a current fascination and I’m really enjoying having my full painting studio at my fingertips anywhere I can travel with my iPad.

Thank goodness I’m blessed with good health, lots of energy, enough to share and be an art curator for other artists, too, online with my artist showcase sites and in my local community.

My path as an artist… the longer version

By the way, I am not the Paula O’Brien who is a psychic medium in the UK, she is but please feel free to send me £100.00 and I’m sure I can tell you something inspiring!
