ABOUT PAULA CALLEJAS
I paint because creating is were I'm most true to myself. It is a great expression of self love where I loose my fears and I create from a place of calm. Painting lets me dream, be still and escape.
I decided to share my work because my greatest dream is that someone will find it beautiful; and that in this beauty they'll find the same sense of calmness and endless possibility I had when I created it; that another human can connect with my own reflections of life, love and our incredible power of choosing how we view life.
Maybe my art will be a reminder for you of what is a priority in your life, of you uniqueness and own bravery, if my art can convey the positive feelings I had when I created it then my dreams come true!

Hi! Thank you for visiting my page!
It has always been hard for me to write about who I am and why I create; but since you are doing me the honor of learning about me, I'll do my best in opening up and sharing my life as an artist
I am Ecuadorian and I was born and raised in Quito. I have painted and created all of my life, I honestly can't remember a period in my life were I didn't! For whatever reasons when I graduated high school and it was time to chose a career I didn't go to art school, and today (about twenty years later) I feel I was guided by life into my real passion which is creating.
I had my first solo art show in 2004 and I've been pursuing art solely and formally since 2017; since then I've come to terms about being self taught, and I feel proud and happy with my progress and with the quality of my work.
