About Paula Letherblaire

Paula Letherblaire, had several art apprentice internships in Northern California from 1982 through 1998 followed by a long string of art glass course work that led her to San Jose State, Pilchuck, UC Davis, UCLA, before graduating as a formal art studio major from California State University Sacramento. In 2001 Paula Letherblaire, as principle artist, established the art team of specialists that became Letherblaire House in Sacramento, California. The Letherblaire House design teams specialize in commercial collaboration with architectural, exterior and interior designers to provide multiple media artwork and installations including: sculpture (bronze, ceramic, dimensional paper, mosaic art glass and earth sculpture formations including fountains and ponds), the occasional oil on canvas, ink drawings, and the most recent obsession with photography prints.
Under the art direction of Paula Letherblaire, the Letherblaire House art team collaborated with numerous international designers, interior designers, architects and landscape designers for resort hotel projects and public space projects in the Western Coastal United States, Hawaii and Bali. Letherblaire House also serves a faithful list of private collectors, and has also participated in several annual group exhibitions sponsored by the Glass Art Society at the Corning Glass Museum in Corning, NY. The demands of collaborative commercial art have long since moved the Letherblaire House away from the art gallery circuit, except for those exhibitions deserving honorable mention that are listed below:
