Description My love for cats has taken me into the world of volunteer work. I help out with special needs cats, and they're all a bunch of sweethearts. It's very interesting to see all the different personalities in this cat community.When I create my art, I occasionally like to toss in a dash of humor, as you can see in the two pieces I did called, Perplexed Cats and Two Cats Reading. These two pieces have been very popular - this is one reason I still continue to do my kitty art!
Paula Dileo, Auburn Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement Paula Di Leo was born in Prince George, British Columbia Canada. While her father was in the military she and her family lived in North Africa, New Mexico, New York, and Southern and Northern California.
Much of Paula’s work had been influenced by her early travels, and the rich and colorful culture of the Arab and Hispanic community .
Paula’s favorite mediums are ink, prisma color pencil, and oil pastel. Her pieces are colorful, whimsical and for the most part figurative. Although her style may range from tight to loose in execution, the subject and vibrancy remain the same. Many of her figurative pieces are characterized by large, soulful eyes.
