A visual storyteller, Paula Timm’s creative practice blends her love of teaching, writing, and creating fine art in Calgary.
Often inspired by the shapes and patterns discovered in urban and rural landscapes, Paula’s art conveys movement and emotion: the use of vivid colours in her work imbues a sense of whimsy in each piece, as well as depth of insight that resonates with her life experiences.
Paula’s diversity of talents find a comfortable home combining drawing, painting and collage. As a Surface Designer and Illustrator, her love of graphic arts is evident in the digital integration of hand-drawn illustrations and photography into her painted works. These finished works adorn objects, and are incorporated into marketing and/or editorial applications.
An Advocate for Wellness and a Creativity Facilitator, Paula partners with Calgary artists and not-for-profit organizations to foster community engagement initiatives that promote and encourage the healing relationship between wellness and creativity. Her hope is to inspire others to consider their own personal journey and its important connection to self-expression.
Paula Timm Artist Studio @cSPACE King Edward opens January 2017. The studio will offer art classes, unique retail goods, and pop-gallery events.
