Main Lounge – March and April
Paula Cravens – Acrylic Paintings
Slocan Valley artist Paula Cravens brings her personality to the canvas, engaging paint, collage, abstract and a touch of whimsy in her portfolio of original works.
Raised between the soy bean, corn and oil fields of a central Illinois farming community, Paula received a BFA from Eastern Illinois University but then took time out to raise two daughters and have a few adventures. In 2014 she moved to the Kootenays and opened Crazy Ravens Studio.
Says Paula, “Creating collage elements is exciting and surprising. I continue to experiment painting in acrylics, focusing on color and texture.” Last summer she participated in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour, where she displayed original paintings, multimedia works, and prints with subjects including animals, people, old trucks and landscapes.
