Paula's journey as an artist has taken her in many directions. She studied at Canterbury Art School followed by a career in the art department of the film industry. She then went on to establish COULTHARD fashion and design label which showed at NZ Fashion Week. This lead onto co-designing the supreme award winning entry ‘Rattle your Dags’ in World of Wearable Art, and now Paula is back to creating art with pieces being sold in art galleries throughout New Zealand.
Paula has a love of natural materials and history.
