Mixed Media Art by Paulette Insall

"Like many other artists, Paulette has been creative from a very young age. From making knotted bracelets and hair accessories as a child to taking photos for her high school year book when she was older. She never thought of herself as an artist until a few years ago. For many years she dreamed of painting, but could never bring herself to pick up a paint brush until October of 2006. That's when her love of creating stories with paint and paper began.

These days when she’s not busy entertaining her very busy four year old son, you will find her stealing any moment she can in her home studio pouring her thoughts and emotions out into the visual stories she creates through her art."

Each work of art has it's own story and here is the story behind this piece:
"A Waking Dream"
An original poem by Paulette Insall

She was roused from her waking dream by wings a-flutter,

the path now so clear before her,
............the transformation underway.
..................the discovery of part of herself that had always been....

Waiting... awaken bloom soar.

Choosing... let go give in breathe.

Her purpose was clear, her peace.
"My art is about the search for connection…to self, to like minded spirits, to family, and to God. Most of my work depicts a sole woman because these are the stories of my own personal search and the emotions they invoke within my soul. My hope is that the visual stories I create with my art touch people from all walks of life and let them know that they are not alone…and find comfort in that knowing."
