With Respect to Nature

Paula Bailey Brent - Peruvian opal dia. ssPaula Bailey Brent ~ Custom Jeweler

The urge to adorn oneself dates back to the dawn of civilization.

“I see jewelry as a window into the natural and cultural history of our planet and its people”.

Inspired by nature’s treasures, Paula has enjoyed creating jewelry for over 40 years.

A particular focus and pleasure has been a partnership with a client creating a unique piece of jewelry that resonates with the wearer.  An added delight is to help a client find new life in heirloom jewelry, maintaining the integrity of a ‘time capsule’.

Painting for me is an ongoing exploration into the possibilities of expressing myself, its a learning curve so challenging and endless that I am completely captivated. There is bliss in those moments when I am so completely absorbed I’m unaware of the time going by, a form of meditation.

I have a deep and abiding love of nature and work to bring the connection I feel with all of nature onto my canvas. Painting helps me to see in a broader way, opens doors of perception to me in my exterior and interior worlds.

I spend as much time as possible plein air painting so that when I am in the studio that freshness and the information gathered while in nature can inform the work that I do there.

Weaving attracts me for its simplicity: two opposing sets of threads twining together to create a whole. As an artist, I hope to weave tapestries that lend beauty and peacefulness to the places they inhabit.

Often feeling that less is more, my designs are intentionally spare. Combining my interests in anthropology and art, I find myself especially drawn to weaving’s cultural universality.
