On January 25, 2017 Paula Noblitt, was selected as the North Tampa Arts League Featured Artist for the 1st Quarter of 2017. Paula’s acrylic painting, “Girl, Book, Cat” explores the simple pleasures of reading a good book with a pet by your side. The loosely painted soft background represents the readers’ loss of awareness as she delves into the theme of the book, while her dreamy gaze, looking directly at the viewer, brings her back to reality. The cat facing opposite the book is perhaps enjoying her own dream.  

Paula’s style varies allowing the subject to dictate the process. Some paintings could be described as “quiet” in terms of color and simplicity, while others incorporate bright colors and iridescence. The voice of the painting generally reflects the artist’s mood… and vice versa. Her most recent work explores dreamy, soft and abstract backgrounds sometimes using highly pigmented inks or liquid acrylics. 

Paula Noblitt resides in Temple Terrace and has been interested in art and painting since adolescence. It wasn’t until recently that she has been able to devote time to her painting passion. She is largely self-taught and utilizes books, internet, and continuing education classes for instruction and support. She credits wonderful high school art teachers for providing her with a base for her work. Paula Noblitt can be contacted at Website
