A Canadian abstract artist living and loving in Toronto, ON, Canada

Artist Biography

Paula Boss, the youngest of 5 siblings, was born and raised in Calgary, AB Canada. At the age of 18 she moved to London, England to work as a professional model. Her modeling work took her from London to Toronto, then to Japan and Spain. In her late 20s she began the transition from being in front of the camera as a model to working behind the camera as a hair and makeup artist.

Daughter of artist, Agnese Benard, Paula always dabbled in artistic pursuits. It wasnt until she was in her 40s, living on Vancouver Island, that she was inspired to follow in her mothers footsteps and pursue her art seriously. She is an intuitive painter, choosing to work in abstract and non-objective styles of painting. An avid and perpetual student of the U of L, Paula is a self taught artist. She uses a variety of mediums, oil pastel for its vibrancy of color, watercolor for its unpredictability and acrylic for its immediacy.

When asked why she creates art, Paula says, I create art because its fun and challenging. We all have to grow old but where does it say we have to grow up? Paula now resides on a beautiful farm just north of Toronto in Markham ON Canada with her husband and partner of 36 years.
