Paula Kerslake

Paula redefines the art of painting in her extraordinary abstract expressionist works that balance geometric shapes with energetic movement. Her artistic process is both concealed and revealed in her paintings that challenge the viewer to interpret and reinterpret what they see. Using rich earthy colours and gel mediums she creates layers of texture in engaging and vibrant works.

Paula has been painting for over 9 years and holds a Diploma in Art and Creativity. She has been selected for two Artist in Residence programmes in New Zealand.

Inspiration comes from the amazing colours and textures of Tongariro National Park where Paula lives. When Paula's not painting, you can find her tutoring art classes or bush walking capturing the beauty of New Zealand's landscape through the lens of her camera.

Paula chooses Resene paints because the colour pigment is excellent, long lasting and it dries quickly. Favourite colours include Resene Nero, Resene Sepia, Resene Geyser, Resene Albescent White, Resene Silver Aluminium and Resene Gold.

"My life's goal is to inspire everyone I meet to fall in love with art."

Paula exhibits and sells her work in group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally. In 2014 she was awarded an 'Exclusive Space Artist' solo wall at the Art Sale Hamilton. In 2015 she was selected as a solo panel artist at The NZ Art Show Wellington.
