I am a visual artist working with mixed media on paper. ​ I like the freedom of working on the floor, on paper, which is my preferred surface with its smooth texture and simplicity. The process completely engages me and I am fascinated by the different mediums and how they can be manipulated and explored.My work is often layered, revealing and concealing. I am particularly interested in expressing vulnerable states of mind, both my own, other people’s and the vulnerability I see in nature. I am influenced by outsider art and I have a strong belief in the intrinsic creativity of each individual and healing benefits of art making. ​ I am inspired by Ewan McDougall, Henri Rousseau, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Tracey Emin, L.S Lowry, Banksy, Picasso, The Stuckists, Cobra group and marginalised artists and groups. ​ I also love winter trees, chickens, gardening, bicycles, sunshine and art shops!Website: http://sousapaula19.wixsite.com/arty Instagram: paula_de_sousa_art Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pdesousaArt/ Twitter: @pauladesousaart
