Paula Service - artist
I am a practicing artist living and working in Sydney's eastern suburbs. By carefully observing nature I enjoy capturing the wonderful coastline and beaches of Eastern New South Wales in oils and sometimes in acrylics. I am fascinated by the beauty and diversity of the landscape and enchanted and mesmerised by the sea in all it's moods.
Being passionate about painting and always striving to improve I was initially encouraged by my father in my childhood when we would go sketching along the shores of the Mersey in Liverpool, UK. I have been painting for more than thirty years between raising a family and work commitments. I am mostly self taught and have developed my own style.
I attended art classes in Canada, and in Sydney with the Royal Art Society NSW and Julian Ashton Art School.
Since arriving in Australia I am greatly motivated by the wonderful colours and fantastic light in this great southern land and moved by the natural beauty of the sea and coastal beaches.
I exhibit regularly and am represented in exhibitions with Randwick Art Society, the Combined Art Societies of Sydney and South Maroubra Village Art Show.
