Thank you! Thank you! Thank You Very Much!

I have done a face-to-face and an online Zoom workshop with Paula and have always followed 

@Arts_Inc. on social media. Paula is so generous with the information she shares, and I have learnt more from her about drawing portraits, than any other teacher. Paula's workshops are fun and informative. She is always willing to give helpful advice and share her creative knowledge.

Paula, Five years ago this week I took a workshop with you at your home in Shanghai. We had recently returned from our Arts & Culture trip to Chendu together. You inspired me to be more free with my art and try new things. Now I'm back in the US and active in our local Calligraphy and Paper Arts Club. Thank you, for encouraging me to go through this door!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend one of Paula's Artist Retreat at the beautiful Norah Head lighthouse in NSW recently. What an amazing lady, not only is her artistic talent unbelievable but her patience, compassion and belief that we all have a little artist inside of us just waiting to be born. WOW what an amazing 3 days. Both myself and the others that attended were treated to a plethora of inspirational artistic inspiration of all sorts. Three days of drawing, painting, texture and so much more. Paula opened her heart to us from the time we arrived and then opened our eyes to all the possibilities that surrounds us everywhere each and every day. By the end of the three days we were looking at our surrounding through the eyes of an artist, our eyes ! I went from being a dummy to being an artist and .for that I will be forever grateful to the lovely Paula.

Pia Kanaan Head Of Dept, Junior School ART, Dulwich College Shanghai, China 2015

"Wow, what a class I experienced over the weekend. I have extremely limited drawing experience but I was blown away with the results of my 'Fanciful Face'. Your teaching style was nurturing and encouraging to a novice. I had a fun time, did not feel out of place and the technical drawing tips were wonderful. I was so excited after the class that I went home and continued drawing. Funny story: I was carrying my drawing out, and a young man in the Noodle Bar said "did you draw that", (me:ha ha, yes!) He replied "awesome! ", I was so thrilled. Once again, thank you, and to anyone thinking they would like to take this class, or enjoy an Arty weekend retreat, do it, best class ever!
