Paula works primarily with weaving and lino printing but also has a natural talent for jewellery making, drawing, carving, tie-dying and fabric printing. Her works embody the cultural traditions she lives by. Whether they are weavings, lino prints or works on paper, they are all stories about her lived experience; the coming together of memory, history, culture and language.
