Paula Scott’s work, though bordering on the surreal, is
autobiographical, reflecting her life’s journey, often using humor and
metaphorical devices to provoke further thought. Though initially self-taught,
she has gained recognition for her “musings,” recently earning a solo show
at the prestigious Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George, B.C., where she remains
in it’s public collection. This is her first show in the U.S. or in a private
who currently lives in Quesnel, B.C., didn’t explore art until her late
thirties, after traveling and leaving a repressive religion. Many of the
“absurd scenarios” seen in her paintings can be traced to her feelings about
her religion and childhood. She has been juried into the Provincial B.C.
Festival of the Arts on numerous occasions since 1996, showing solo in 2000.
Scott received the Vancouver Foundation Development Award grant in 2000 to
explore different surfaces, mediums and the psychological use of color in art.
She has taught art to both children and adults since 1997. Scott’s curated
shows include the Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George, B.C. and Artropolis in
