I am a self taught full time artist who currently lives/works in Huntsville,Texas. I have been making art since 2004. Initially I began making wall art and was exhibiting in local Vermont Galleries. When I moved to Texas everything changed!
In Texas the materials available to me were different, soon my PaulaArt shop was filled with utilitarian objects and so, when I started making flowers I opened this shop so it could be filled with found object flowers.
My days are spent looking for lost, tossed and abandoned objects. It always surprises me the things I find when I ride my bike or walk on the roads, peering into dumpsters or visiting the small recycle/scrap yard within the confines of town. The flowers I make are an expression of my delight and fascination with found objects, particularly the minutia that truly seems unusable and sometimes ugly. I love how they enliven my own loft! They are like little animals wafting odd personalities.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to work with you on a flower arrangement with or without a vase. It can take anywhere from a week or two to a few months depending on how many flowers you want and how involved you want to be in the process. Price varies too as it depends on how much back and forth discussion/photos/approval is involved.

Care instructions

My work is made from mostly salvaged junk. Most of it is already rusty and shouldn't really be put outside unless you are prepared for more rust to develop (which many people don't mind) I varnish the stems and heads (but not always). If you notice rust you can always lightly sand and re-varnish via spray or brush. I don't advise keeping the flowers outside in harsh weather (winter/freezing/blazing hot etc) as that can destroy them over time both cosmetically and physically. If you want them to last for years and years I advise a covered porch/patio or indoors.

IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT RETURNS:

Returns are accepted but NOT on custom made flowers or existing flowers that you requested the stems be cut shorter.
I ask that you contact me within 3 days of receiving your order & return within 7 days. Order should be returned in same package/condition w/ tracking. You are responsible for return shipping fees; refunds given once I receive package minus original shipping.
For orders returned to me because for any other reason such as incorrect address/outdated address etc, I will refund for the cost of the item less original shipping fee that you paid. I can resend the item (in the states only) to the correct address if you want to pay for shipping again.
