Paula Nightingale


Paula Nightingale has been painting since early teenage years. Being a passionate explorer of art, Paula decided to continue the artist path graduating from Beckenham School of Art, followed by the Royal College of Art (1st Class Hons). From there she did a year's Scholarship at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunst in Munich, where she explored the techniques of etching.

After settling at Aldeburgh during the early 70's, the Suffolk coast has been the artist's continuing inspiration. Her best work is produced on site, when painting can become an almost spiritual experience. It is said that Paula captures the timeless quality of this county.

Paula's work was presented at numerous exhibitions around England. The painting of 'Rosie in the Poppy Garden' (An Aldeburgh garden near the sea front) has featured on wooden jig-saws, tapestry design, calenders, greetings cards and prints of all shapes and sizes. In addition to general acknowledgement, her work featured in the TV series 'Coastal inspirations'.
