Paula Stirland brings in the new year with her stunning and uncanny portraits. Born (and even a little raised) in England, this pom turned Perth girl is currently making her mark at Artful Ink, designing tattoos for the bold and unique.
Paula's work is also rampant through the local music scene, where you can see her interests in graphic design, tribal art and tatts manifest itself on posters, logos and album art. And some of the metal and rock groups are even lucky enough to be the object of her camera's gaze.
For our Mini Art Mart, Paula has collected a few of her favourite portraits, and she certainly has a knack for capturing cheeky glints of the eye and curls of the lip. Infused with alternative fashion, shadows, and personality, these sketches are guaranteed to remind you of someone you know.
