Paula Dickerhoff: Drawing, Studio 2042
Paula Dickerhoff is an artist who works with both collage and Zentangle. She is drawn to these methods because they are like puzzles, involving many tiny parts that the artist must arrange to form new images. Paula’s work strikes a perfect balance between realism and abstraction, with the faces of people and pets formed from patterns and magazine clippings. Paula has been drawing since childhood, and also learned watercolor before creating her distinctive and whimsical collage work. Her love of drawing also led her to Zentangle, a method of drawing that emphasizes the freedom of creativity. She has been a part of the Huntsville art community for years, showing at 16 Main in Madison and the Flying Monkey Arts before getting a studio at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.
Paula also creates commissioned portraits, especially animal portraiture,
and is a certified teacher of the Zentangle method. You can find her hard at
work in her North Wing Studio 2042 at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment.
My name is Paula, and I live in Huntsville, Alabama, with my husband and our two boys, ages 24 and 21. After moving about with the Air Force, we settled here in Huntsville in 1999. I have always been interested in art, and being creative has always been a part of my life. I became a Certified Zentangle® Teacher in February of 2011 after stumbling across Zentangle over the internet while painting a whimsical paisley peacock. I love to paint with both watercolor and acrylics. When I discovered Zentangle, I was intrigued. It is relaxing, fun to do, and it can be very beautiful.
