NANOOSE BAY STUDIO
Her home studio is nestled into the side of a Nanoose Bay hill, on Vancouver Island, Canada, resplendent with her favourite coastal trees, the Arbutus menziesii (Pacific Madrona south of the border). This majestic tree has become the focus of her recent works.
Paulette’s evolution to studio artist has been heavily influenced by the teachings of many Contemporary Fibre Artists from Vancouver Island and beyond.
Her contemporary work as Fibre Artist features the textures and colours of the Madrona bark and leaves and tree.
