About The Artwork

It is always a joy to see curlews on my walks through the fields around our home. Their call is like music which has a haunting magic. I made this drawing of curlews in flight with a 3D pen and flexible filament. Working with a 3D pen is literally drawing with plastic and using the rubber-like filament, I've made a piece of round lace. The lace-like fabric has then been securely sewn to a 60cm sturdy wire hoop with fishing line. I've used black filament for the drawing which looks like embroidery and clear for the background. This is an incredibly light piece of art which makes hanging the piece a very easy task. My 3D pen wall hangings/tapestries look quite delicate but the TPU filament is incredible strong and durable. It's very easy to keep the art clean and dust free with a vacuum attachment or feather duster.

Paula grew up in the beautiful city of York in the United Kingdom and was employed as a textile designer in the early years of her working life. Art has always been a constant and she has explored and experimented with many conventional and unconventional materials. The first sculptures she sold were made out of bread dough which were baked and varnished. These pieces proved so popular that she was able to pursue her dream of being a self employed artist and sold her work successfully through art fairs and markets. Eventually Paula discovered coloured hot melt glue sticks which was an unexplored and really exciting medium to work with. She managed to incorporate wire into the melted glue and was able to form amazing sculptures which were exhibited in many galleries including The Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Further experimentation resulted in the glue guns being used on canvas with the glue replacing acrylic paint which she’d previously used. These sculptural paintings (animal portraits and landscapes) have also enjoyed great success and have been shipped as far and wide as the USA and Australia. One of her beautiful horse paintings was featured on the cover of Equestrian Trade News magazine. More recently Paula has enjoyed working with her latest discovery, the 3D Printer Pen. This ingenious little device allows the artist to draw with melted plastic. Once the filament has cooled, the drawing is a permanent artwork which will hold its shape and can be hung from a dowel or professionally framed. These wall hangings have a lace-like quality and they can be categorized as sculpture and drawing as they are both. For the last four years Paula has lived in Wensleydale and has drawn her art inspiration from the local breath taking countryside and wildlife.
