Paula Yates has explored her natural creative ability since childhood. Her dream was to grow up and be an artist. However, her career was in banking until the year 1991. She changed careers and went into the business of fine art framing. Exposure to nationally recognized artists and galleries became the inspiration that led Paula to her first sculpture class. An instantaneous love of sculpture became a creative turning point in her life. She first pursued sculpting as a hobby and was later compelled to turn it into her career. She now has pieces in private and corporate collections throughout the USA, Canada and Europe.
