Paula Ryan has called several places “Home”, with each affecting her art in unique ways. As a young child, the art scene in Laguna Beach sparked an interest in oil painting. Soon, her art studies expanded into working with other mediums, including charcoal and colored pencil. Paula spent high school living on a Rocky Mountain ranch north of Estes Park, Colorado. The mountains and local color influenced her love of painting and drawing wilderness landscapes.
After graduating from Bethany College (Kansas) with a degree in education, Paula employed her skills as an artist in her teaching career. She taught in both public and private schools for 20 years and incorporated art into lessons for children of all ages.
Paula moved to Idaho in 2001, where she continued teaching, while spending much of her free time hiking, fishing, and gleaning ideas for artistic work. She retired from teaching in 2013 to pursue her love of art full time. When she is not painting, Paula enjoys spending time with her husband and their two dogs in the woods and mountains, where she finds more inspiration for her art.
