Art – the ultimate stress relief

Artist Paula Ross with her work

After a tough day in the classroom teaching the children of Cayman, Paula Ross has only one way to unwind.

For some it may be a glass of wine, or a hot soak in the tub, but not Paula, who teaches at St Ignatius.

She heads straight to her gallery at her home in Snug Harbour and gets cracking on her latest masterpiece.

Originally from Tyneside in the UK, Paula has spent 21 years living in Cayman.

This week an exhibition of her mosaic art work opened at the Full of Beans Café in Pasadora Place.

Her work is a mixture of vibrant and bright colours that, in her mind, depict the Caribbean lifestyle that has influenced her work.

She also creates quilt work – using the same array of colours and style of her pictures and mirrors.

Ms Ross said: “After working all day with children I find this is the best way to relax and unwind.

“The colours and style are influenced by the Caribbean which has been my home for the past 21 years.

“I have a studio at home and really love creating the effects using stain glass. And it is such a good feeling when someone buys one knowing it will be on the wall of their home.”
