Paula o'brien

My paintings are dynamic, lively and full of colour. 

Originally from Montreal, travel adventure and love lead me to Europe, the Caribbean and England where I continued my Fine Arts education. We planted ourselves with our growing family in Gibsons, BC in 1989. 

Family and business life took precedence but I always approached my artwork seriously and continued to exhibit by myself and with others. I established a reputation as a textile artist with my wearable art, art textiles and sewing pattern line Pavelka Design.

I started painting more seriously in 2003 and my return to life drawing in 2007 caused my paintings to shift from works from imagination to works from direct observation. My current body of work celebrates the West Coast World with images of fishing boats, landscapes and charming small character homes coming into view. 

In the studio I work in oils on canvas, using a lots of palette knife, working very fast in a loose alla prima style. My mark-making is very deliberate and individual. My move into digital painting is another step on my artistic path. I try to capture the beauty and feeling of a place, the light, the motion, our connections to our world captured in a semi abstract manner.

I am so excited to be showing my work at the Gibsons Public Market, with 25% of sales donated back to the Market, and an additional 25% donated to the Sunshine Coast Conservation Association, which works to protect biodiversity on the Sunshine Coast. 

I grew up on the coast and am fortunate enough to be living in Roberts Creek while pursuing my two passions – art and engineering. Some may see these as two opposite fields, but when blended together I feel they complement each other – with engineering precision influencing the crisp lines and forms of my art.

I primarily work with ink and acrylic (with occasional dips into watercolour and digital graphic design). I am drawn to bold lines and forms, and love creating black ink illustrations with occasional pops of colour. My art centers on themes of nature, and I am continuously inspired by ocean and coastal scenes.

In addition to my original pieces for sale on the main and upper level of the Gibsons Public Market, my art cards are for sale year-round at Goodacre Market on the lower level of the Gibsons Public Market.
