Contemporary abstract artist Paulette Insall’s paintings are filled with color, movement and joy. To view more of her work, please visit her website.
I believe that art can be a vehicle for transformation and healing. When someone views my art for the first time and they tell me they feel something when they look at it — that it evokes emotion — well then, that is the best compliment that I could ever receive.
At its core, my work is about the healing power of beauty. My intent is to create beauty that connects with the viewer emotionally. When a piece of art moves the viewer, it can transform hearts and minds.
The inspiration for my work comes from the beauty of nature and music. In my experience, both have transformative qualities.
You can see their influence in the movement, palettes, and compositions of my work. Using my innate sense of color and design, I create paintings that have been called jewels full of life, light, and dancing color.
I work in abstract because I feel that it allows all pretenses to fall away. There is nothing standing in the way of connecting on a deep level with the work. I want my work to resonate, to touch a person’s heart in a way that fills them with great emotion.
Bringing joy and inspiration through my work is my purpose in life and I feel blessed to have been given this gift to share with the world.
My art is in numerous private and public collections worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Australia, UK, and Singapore.
Recently, I have begun working with interior designers and design centers. Now I am seeking national gallery representation for my work.
Since I began painting in 2006, my art and essays have been featured in several national and regional publications. Born and raised in Alabama, I now live just outside of Portland, Oregon with my husband and son where I’m surrounded by the inspiring beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
