Paula Carter

Paula worked exclusively in watercolor for fifteen years, however, three years ago she started producing hand-painted wood fire screens and stools. It was during this period that her mother-in-law suggested she try her hand at rock painting. It was ‘love at first rock’ and she now devotes full time to painting wildlife on river rock that she and her husband Chic have collected from across the United States and Asia. Paula’s husband is a pilot for a major airline and brings back the more ‘exotic’ rocks for her StoneArt creations. Through a commission request to paint an animal on an ostrich egg, Paula decided to start producing wildlife ornaments this year to sell along with her river rocks.

Besides her web site, Paula has been selling her works at the Holiday Fair and the Hills Skills Arts and Crafts Shows in Greenville, SC for the last two years. This past May she was honored to be a featured artist at the Greer Cultural Arts Council's 'Millennium Garden Tour', and she will be participating in four shows this fall including the Hills Skills and Holiday Fair once again. Paula's StoneArt creations and Peregrin’s Nest wildlife ornaments are also sold at Creative Hands Artisan Center in Lyman, SC, Palmetto Galleries in downtown Spartanburg and the Spartanburg County Museum of Arts.

The artist says: "Although I paint a little most days, I only produce around 250 pieces a year. I love to share my love of this art form by offering my knowledge to those who often email me and ask me how to get started and related questions. This fall and next summer I am planning to hold classes for children in rock painting at a local arts center, as well as, demonstrations at some area schools. Children are very drawn to the stone animals and I look at it as one way to introduce them to art appreciation and open the doors for them into other art forms as well."
