Paula Arwen Owen is an artist who works in hand cut paper silhouettes and collage, combining simple, elegant lines against tapestries of texture and color to create compelling narrative illustrations. Her artwork explores the contrast of darkness and light, of dreams and reality, and of beauty and decay. Her subjects include mythology, fantasy, and nature.
A graduate of Parsons School of Design, she has many years of experience in illustration and graphic design. Her fantasy and horror illustration work has appeared in magazines such as Mythic Delirium and Strange Horizons, and on book covers by authors including Cherie Priest and Catherynne Valente. Her greeting cards have been included in the book Creative Cut Cards from Lark Crafts.
Living at the edge of an enchanted forest deep within the Catskill mountains, she shares her home with her husband and a variety of creatures, domestic, wild and mythical.
Paula’s unique cut paper greeting cards, artwork and decals are available at her Etsy shop and in retail stores.
