Paula's early years were spent in south-east England. Having studied Fine Art and Ceramics at college, she began a long teaching career in London, Sussex, Australia, Kent and Hampshire. During these years she continued to practise ceramics, mainly hand building with clay.
The inspiration for her work has always been the landscape, seascape and ancient history of west Penwith. She is based in Perranarworthal, near Truro.
