Paula’s Paintings on Silk

In my previous life I was an Artist on Silk, however since being diagnosed with ME, it has had to take a back seat. I started my business ‘Possi’ in 1990, with the help of a marketing grant from ‘The Princes’ Youth business trust’. I went on to win various business awards and in 1995 opened a shop and gallery in the Somerset Market town of Castle Cary. At Christmas 2003 I closed the gallery and sold the buildings moving  to the outskirts of Castle Cary where I began to focus on my personal career as an Artist. I went on to exhibit all over England and in the USA, also teaching silk painting to small groups of willing students. I have been unable to paint since falling ill in 2009. In March 2014 I was diagnosed with type 3 Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I have accepted that I can no longer paint but am happy to look back on what was a fun and exciting career.
